Published haiku

I’ve not posted my haiku for over a year now. But this doesn’t mean I haven’t been working at them!  I wanted to concentrate more on trying to get some published in haiku journals.  If I post my haiku on my blog, they’re considered published. And haiku journals as a rule only accept unpublished work.

This is why I’m pleased that two of my haiku have been recently published. One appeared in the October edition of the Haiku Canada Review.

the lilacs bow down
with rain

My other haiku received honourable mention in the 2014 Vancouver Cherry Blossom International Haiku Invitational.

witty aside

I will have two more haiku published in the February edition of the Haiku Canada Review. I’ll post these in March.
