We also now have a team of moderators and admins from different time zones to help with the day to day business of TDH. Thank you to Keith Evetts, Wendy Houser Blomseth, Connie Pittman Ramsey, John Lanyon and Fran Lester. After our first team meeting on zoom we have added membership questions for new members to answer including affirming they accept a flexible approach to haiku which we hope will curtail any overt disagreements that occasionally pop up in the group.
As we move forwards I am keen to pursue the possibility of an anthology, competitions and more collaborations as we have had with Paper Nations including our stunning I EVEN DREAM IN HAIKU films. Do add your ideas for where you want us to go as we grow.
Do enjoy revisiting the eclectic themes from the last two weeks; showcase your favourites, write new haiku, reveal the bonus themes and share with friends who are not on social media.
Start each haiku with WHEN
Slow Renga First Lines
When I first saw you
A gentle touch
Shadows in the wind
Morning has broken by Cat Stevens https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0TInLOJuUM
Money by Pink Floyd https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0kcet4aPpQ
Thank you for your amazing contributions in response to a request for photographs for this haiga relating to our theme this week of BLUE. Do respond to the wonderful photographs featured in the link below. Write haiku inspired by what you see, thinking beyond the literal representations, by either choosing a stand-alone haiku or making a new image with a haiku written over it.
