BP: Haiku Happenings Times Three

This week at the Haiku Foundation’s weekly column, Haiku Dialogue, the prompt was Finding Peace and Contemplation in leisure time..flying kites. Over twenty-five nations were represented in the this week’s collection of haiku about the joys (and sorrows) of kite flying.

This pedometer geek writer was pleased to have a haiku selected in this high-flying crowd of poets. It is as follows:

light wind

my sons run fast enough

to get their kite up

~Nancy Brady, 2022

Thanks Marietta McGregor for selecting one of mine for inclusion this week. To read all the haiku, check out http://www.thehaikufoundation.org under the Haiku Dialogue tab.


Wales Haiku Journal, Spring 2022, was just published with haiku divided into three sections: Spring Air, Spring Earth, and Spring Tide.

Wales Haiku Journal’s editor Joe Woodhouse was kind enough to have chosen one of this pedometer geek’s haiku for inclusion in this edition. It is as follows:

spring thaw

all that remains

is a carrot nose

~Nancy Brady, 2022

Thanks, Joe, for selecting this haiku. It was written several years ago with a different kigo, but was never accepted for publication prior to this.

There are really excellent haiku in this issue so please check them out at http://www.waleshaikujournal.com/spring-22.

Last, but not least, this pedometer geek writer was informed that two haiku/senryu will be included in Moth Orchid Press’ Erotic ‘Ku Anthology (name still to be determined) and that several haiku/senryu will also be published in the May edition of Failed Haiku.

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.

    • Thanks, and will do. In fact, Failed Haiku is out today and I know there are a couple of mine in that journal. More than anything else, I will be glad when Tuesday is over (Election Day (primary, that is), and I have to work it.)..
