BP: Haiku Happenings (Haiku Dialogue/Haiku Seed)

This week’s Haiku Dialogue column at the Haiku Foundation was based on another Family Portrait prompt. This one was an early morning photograph of the guest editor’s wife.

From the editor, John S. Green, came the following commentary:

“…146 poets contributed 239 poems. A new high of 30 countries makes me happy – I love this global community. As my friend, Victor Ortiz, said at a recent Haiku Society of America conference on The Ecology of Haiku, ‘Haiku may even help to save our planet.’ By the way, this photo is my lovely wife. Thanks honey for letting me use this as a prompt.”

With this number of haiku submitted, this pedometer geek writer feels extremely fortunate to have had the following haiku selected for inclusion:

early riser…
my dad greets me
with “morning glory”

~Nancy Brady

Thanks, John, for choosing this haiku for inclusion with the others you featured in the column. It is truly appreciated. To read all the other haiku he selected, check out https://thehaikufoundation.org/haiku-dialogue-family-portraits-portrait-three

In other haiku happenings, Haiku Seed (www.haikuseed.com) asked for submissions for the weekly prompt of seed. While the prompt was seed, it wasn’t necessary to actually use the word in the haiku.

Thanks to the Haiku Seed editor, this pedometer geek writer had the following haiku selected for the column:

summer afternoon

goldfinch pair ravages

the sunflowers

~Nancy Brady, 2022

All of the haiku can be read on Twitter at @HaikuSeed_. The editor paired each haiku with a drawing, making each a haiga. It is gratifying to see a haiku blended with art. Thanks again for choosing the haiku and the pairing; it is truly appreciated.

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.
