Share a Haiku-a-Day for December

Cara Holman has come up with a great haiku sharing event on her blog Prose Posies for this month. As she points out, there's many haiku out there that we miss seeing because there is so much to read, or maybe it was published before our time, or in a journal in a country far from our own.

What Cara is inviting us to do is to share a haiku each day in the comments section of her blog that relates in some way to the haiku she posts each day. Easy peasy, and heaps of fun. Get into it folks! Here's the first post (sign up to her blog and receive her posts directly to your email inbox).

that looks like you

  1. Nice pairing, Kirsten. Btw, I didn't know you had a haiku appear in the Red Moon Anthology. That is really cool-- congratulations!

  2. Thanks, Cara! :)
    Gosh, that seems like a long time ago now . . .
