Ongoing, no end date, until the world says otherwise!

Hi Lorraine,

The dynamics of the journal will become obvious over time. I don't want people rushing, but taking their time. Often 'waiting' is the key to haiku and getting the right words in the right place. Also the other piece is about the interplay (often called juxtaposition) between two 'characters'.

So take your time, enjoy that time, and also look forward to whose haiku (not mine) that you have read in another journal that you admire for aspects of its craft and overall effect.

warm regards,
Alan

Alan,

you mean we can’t brown nose you b choosing yours?  😩

actually. i’ve started my response. what i found ironic was how the one of mine that i chose and the one i admire have similar ideas. it wasn’t deliberate.

letting the other two parts percolate. i found that interesting too. relationships. taking time. like haiku. hmmm.

the whole process makes me think about the question i posed over in advanced haiku discussion about organic poetry.

Hi Lorraine,

Alas picking one of my haiku would be defeating one of the purposes of the journal. I want to know what and why a haiku from someone else other than the poet (or myself) does to each person submitting to the journal.

It's going to be a very interesting experiment and there is serious intent behind the humor of the submission guideline challenges.

warm regards,
Alan

Over the moon, I have the first submission, and that poet has nominated another poet, and I will put this up as soon as I can later this week!

More submissions being worked upon, I hear, so I can't wait!

There is absolutely no rush, as there is no deadline, this is an all-year project.
