haiku/haiga/haibun – July 2022

A little more than halfway done through 2022. As always poetry-writing and sharing has lessened the clichés of life. I feel truly blessed to have my submissions read by amazing editors. There were rejections too as is the case with submissions. But in the process of interaction with editors, I gathered knowledge, warmth, and useful pointers for which I remain grateful. Acceptances of course are great joy and reassurance.
Combing through my published writing from last few weeks, I found these. Sharing them here to include you in my journey.

This haiga is from Fresh Out, an art and poetry collective co-edited by Eric Lohman! Do visit their facebook page to know submission guidelines! https://www.facebook.com/freshoutmag
