BP: Wales Haiku Journal (Summer 2021)

This year this pedometer geek writer has tried to submit haiku to more journals, and as a result, there has been a fair amount of success. Yes, this writer has had rejections, too, but there are enough acceptances to make the effort worthwhile.

The latest publication was in the Wales Haiku Journal, and this is the first time for being in this journal. The haiku is as follows:

late summer

seen through her hair

a cicada’s shell

 ~Nancy Brady

This haiku was written several years ago, but has never been selected for publication, that is, until now. To read all the haiku, check out their website. The haiku are from poets from around the world, and I am honored to be among them.  https://www.waleshaikujournal.com

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.

    I’ve found a few emerging cicada as well as empty shells… those are a bit eerie. But the the cicada is a unique bug!!

    Congratulations on your haiku acceptance 😀

    • Thanks, Jules. I have to agree with you; the shells are a bit creepy. When my younger son was just a year old and my older son three, we lived near an arboretum. It was the year of the 17-year cicadas in our area. The noise was ear-splittingly loud all the time so most of our time was spent indoors, but my older son would gently pick them up all the time, and we saw plenty of the empty shells after they molted.Now, they don’t bother nearly as much…immersion therapy it was. Be well. ~nan
