    how many
    become one
    sound of rain

    the shape of glass

      Thanks! Admittedly, I've been in a bit of a drought re: sending haiku, tanka, and haibun to journals. I did send a submission to Frogpond recently, and will send off a haibun submission perhaps to Prune Juice or Haibun Today in the near future. : )

        Editing a comment
        That's great!

        I've been quiet of late as I'm focusing on different aspects of Call of the Page, and so there's a lot happening behind the scenes!
        We've also been running a lot of shahai and haiku courses, which I love, and my time and energy has to go there first.

        All the best for your various submissions!
