The Autumn Showcase draws near…

Weeping willow and swallows, attrib. Rakusan Tsuchiya

Swallows, swifts, all fork-tailed birds here in Scotland, leave us at this time of year. But they arrive somewhere else. So it goes.

I’m aiming to publish the next Showcase on 1st October. It will arrive, like a migrating swallow, wherever you are…

The Summer 2021 is now published… late!

Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa, we’re ten days late. But we’ve arrived!

A plea – I am still looking for new writers and artists. Ask around, canvass your friends!

To visit the Summer 2021 Showcase, hover your cursor over the “Experience” tab and scroll down until you find it. Alternatively, click here.

Enjoy!

Summer deadline approaches

The sky is blue over Kamakura, as the Northern Hemisphere approaches the longest day. Not long after that, it will be time for the next Showcase here at the zen space. I am, as always, looking for brilliant haiku and short, in-the-moment poetry, along with new visual images of course. I love to hear from people who are new to me.

The next Showcase does not have a planned theme. You may use the image above as an inspiration, or you can simply surprise me…

The next Showcase is due out on April 1st…

… which seems like a good excuse for some short bursts of foolery. What do you think? As usual, I’ll look at anything you send, but I am particularly looking for new names, so pass it on!

If ever a time did not feel right to call for poetry…

If ever a time did not feel right to call for poetry, if ever poetry felt like a privilege, that time is now. Nevertheless I am still aiming for a publication date of 1st July for the next Showcase here, and to that end I’m putting out a last call for submissions.

As always I am especially hoping to hear from “new voices.”

Oh how I would love for those new voices to be those of the habitually unheard. But one can’t go seeking, or it would seem like unsolicited patronage. All I can say is that this door is open.

It is as open to new artwork as it is to haiku and other short-burst poetry. Habitually I scavenge the internet for artwork. I would very much like to feature more original visual material. Please, bring it to me.

Thank you.

The Winter 2020 Showcase is now published!

Another new year is upon us, and with it another showcase.

Readers, spread the word. I’m looking – always looking – for new names for the Showcases. I want anyone who can write haiku or other short forms that are in-the-moment. See the “Submission” tab for how to put forward your work.

Anyhow, this Showcase… hover your cursor over the “Experience” tab and scroll down the list until you get to the bottom. Or, if you want an easy ride, click here.

May your year be filled with moments. Well, you can hardly avoid ’em.

A few suggestions for the next Showcase…

  1. The wind
  2. Numbers
  3. A young woman in a dress the colour of sunrise

As always, I welcome new names and new voices, and original artwork.

And while you’re here, this is my latest 4-5-6 piece.

There’s less than a week to go…

… to the new Showcase, and I haven’t a clue what I’m going to do!

The Summer 2019 Showcase is now published

Yes! Go there without further ado! Hover your pointer over the “Experience” tab and scroll down – if you haven’t seen our previous Showcases you might care to make a little stop on the way down – or click here.

Do you write in short bursts? Are you a dab hand at haiku, senryu, or anything of the suchlike? the zen space would like to hear from you. Details of how to submit your work can be found by clicking on the “Submission” tab. [I’m sorry, but submissions made in comments are not accepted.]

Anyhow, time for you to enjoy, so get clicking!
