    As I have had the privilege of editing LEAF Issue Three I have found myself fully immersed in the most sensory, thought-provoking and inspiring world of haiku and haiga. I am returning regularly to get my fix, dipping in and out, sharing with friends and family, many of whom have never experienced haiku. One of my brother in laws responded today with his own haiku, directly inspired by the Journal, which was fantastic. The condensing of thought and word, image and word, the consideration of juxtaposition and the shifting emotions this writing evokes is just wonderful. I found myself immediately inspired to linger a little longer with my own writing practice. Thank you to all the contributors and also the editorial and production team for great work. Looking forward to Issue Four. Yes, I can’t get enough

      Thrilled and humbled to find a special mention of my Haiku attempt. Needless to say that it is very encouraging and motivates us to pen down in verses the emotions that strike us, in being mindful of the nature around us and our thoughts that react with it. Thank you dear Amanda White for giving us a platform, Ravi Kiran for your encouragement, Keith Evetts for the insightful commentary, Marion Clarke for your discerning choice and wonderful commentaries as well. This new issue is a treasure with great verses from fellow contributers.

      The Leaf comes calling
      An unbearable lightness
      A recognition

      Thank you. Thank you. I am on cloud nine😁😁

    As there is a small cost involved in producing LEAF I have set up a buymeacoffee account and if you wanted to contribute you can do so here buymeacoffee.com/THEDAILYHAIKU
    BUT THIS IS NOT IN ANYWAY COMPULSORY. We are proud that LEAF and membership of THE DAILY HAIKU is fully inclusive and accessible, free for anyone to take part in.
