BP: Haiku Dialogue (Seeing Beyond Seeing)

Weekly, the Haiku Foundation’s Haiku Dialogue column has haiku, which follows a theme, submitted from poets around the world. The newest prompts are to be based on a photo which the editor has chosen.

This first-in-a-series’s photo was that of a sunset on the water as seen through the glass shards of a window. The photo can be seen here: http://www.thehaikufoundation.org under the Haiku Dialogue tab followed by all the haiku selected for the week, a few of them with guest editor Carole MacRury’s commentary.

Here’s mine:

broken window

battered woman

shattered life

~Nancy Brady, 2020

Check out all the haiku here (www.thehaikufoundation.org). There are some truly outstanding haiku which range from hopeful to despairing and all points in between; well done to all. There is also the second photo prompt by the editor. Submissions will be accepted until Saturday, January 18, 2020 midnight, Pacific Time. The column will come out on the following Wednesday, January 22, 2020.


About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

  2. Well, I submitted for this week’s photo, but I seriously doubt either of my haiku will be selected. For what it is worth, the column comes out on Wednesday morning and the photo is also released for the following week. Haiku can be submitted through Saturday, midnight PST.
