More New Places for Poets/Writers

If you enjoy haiku and an occasional prompt, you should visit Haiku Bones.  It is a weekly haiku meme, just starting this week.  Basic instructions for writing haiku are in its sidebar.  It is the collaborative creation of Nancy Bea Miller and her brother Bruce.  Links to participants’ haiku are on each prompt post.  Just think, a chance to write and find new blogs to read.  Enjoy!


Those who write might also be interested in this link:  They’ve got an interesting competition going, not to mention a good excuse to visit your favorite coffee shop.  I stumbled on this info on Books:  Publishing, Reading, Writing.

  1. What a wickedly fun idea–hmm. Thank you, Yousei. I often write at several coffee and a teashop…interesting concept.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Isn’t though! I want to do this quite badly, but my local coffee shop does not have internet access and the nearest one that does would mean quite a daily drive. Sigh. (Loud mental whining.)

    Thank you for the links, Yousei. This looks great. I meant to tell you I enjoyed the ones above, too. I’m reading your posts out of order, so that probably doesn’t make sense…haha! In other words, thank you. Great info.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      What ever the order, I am thrilled you are reading them. Every comment someone leaves is a reminder to me of how blessed I am through this blog. I am so happy to be blogging, especially writing poetry.

  3. Augh, just what I need… ANOTHER prompt site to get obsessive with…! ;P

    But thanks for the link, it’s always good to be part of something inaugural, I think…

    You know, for the longest time I did all my comments in haiku. When things get more settled for me, I need to do that again. As in, when my brain regroups and mends from building a website (WHICH I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT HOW TO DO A WEEK AND A HALF AGO!!!), IF it ever regroups…where am I? What? Huh? 😆

    This is a great bit of info that reminded me of my mission: to fill the world with haikus! Thank You Lovely Yousei! Cheers and Namaste. 🙂

    • Yousei Hime says:

      LOL. Best wishes on the brain recovery. I know how you feel. I want to learn the code for setting up blog sites, but dread feeling stupid for as long as the lessons will take. Glad you liked the links. Haiku all over the world . . . isn’t the world already filled with haiku, most just don’t see them? Bless you Blissbeam!

    Hi Yousei;

    as simple as it is
    is beyond
    my capabilities

    i respect those
    who pursue
    the ghost
    of haiku

    for it is tough
    to get
    a handle
    on a spirit

    I wish you and yours a Merry Christmas 🙂
