Welcome to the Haiku Hub!

I have been getting together a number of Haiku writers to start up a Haiku Hub.

What’s it about?

The purpose of the Hub is to provide a common space for those who enjoy writing, reading and sharing haiku. Anyone is welcome to become part of the community.

There will be regular posts and prompts as well as contributions from various members.

You can check out some of my haiku over the last year and a half HERE

Who can join in?

You do not have to be an exclusive writer of haiku to participate, nor do you need to feel obliged to engage with every challenge or discussion. If you enjoy haiku and would like to keep in touch then put a link to your blog in the comments at the end of the post and a little self-intro. If you follow this blog you can get notifications of Haiku Hub activities.

To access comments simply press the little black speech bubble at the end of this post.

Inaugural Haiku Hub Members

The blogs listed below are some of the many who include haiku in their repertoire of writing, many of whom I have come to know well through my own haiku endeavours. As numbers grow I will add new members to the Haiku Hub Page found HERE.

LOGO – Haiku Hub

Haiku Hub Badge copyright TJ Paris 2016
I created this logo which you are welcome to use on any post you would like to share on Haiku Hub. The backrground is a piece of Lapis Lazuli and the Butterflies come from a Satsuma plate I have from the late 19th Century

Where to from Here?

This is a community. I would love to know what you would like to see on the hub. I suggest you begin by using this as a chance to give a little self intro and perhaps put in a link to a favorite haiku of your own that we can enjoy sharing.

Best wishes on you haiku journey and keep watching for future haiku fun.

But I want to write a haiku now!…

If you are looking to write a new haiku you may like to try my own weekly challenge…

TJ’s Household Haiku (a new prompt each Saturday) or head over to Ronovan Writes for his weekly challenge (New post each Monday) or Haiku Horizons each Sunday

Or add a link to your haiku in the comment section.

Coming up…

I will be posting some information on how to write haiku for the uninitiated. Get thinking seasons, nature and surprises…

  1. Yay!it’s up!!!
    Ok so I’m Ritu from But I Smile Anyway. I fell into haiku writing purely by accident when trying Ronovan’s weekly challenge and fell in love with the form! I’m not expert but I always have a go!

    It’s no easy feat
    With limited syllables
    Expressing yourself!

  2. Alas it’s set ! Ooo !
    Hey everyone,
    I’m Ismath from mychoice360 . It’s been almost 3 months since I stepped into writing haiku . I came to know about this form when I was surfing about the various forms of poetry available,this looked so cute – small and tiny but had amazing hidden treasures (meanings)
    Who can’t fall into love with this ?
    But my zest over this increased further after participating in various haiku challenges held in the links mentioned above .
    So yes , that’s all about me ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Thanks a lot Sir , for taking me on board with other amazing writers . Yes! The logo looks just so amazing ! I love it .

    1. So delighted you like the logo. It took a while to get the butterflies image off the plate. I am really glad you think it works and delighted to have you in the Hub! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I can’t imagine how to create a logo…I can manage to put it on my blog, but crafting an original piece that others will covet…that’s out of my league. (You must have photoshop or some fancy-shmancy program, eh?)

          1. Oh gosh, I’ll never get any serious work done today, for all the guffawing! You’re way too Brilliant–logo a gogo… Your students must be absolutely captivated–what classes/subjects do you teach?

          2. I teach Japanese and also look after students who want to go into apprenticeships or work training after high school. These students often need a bit of “left of centre” teaching and you need to be able to laugh loud and long sometimes. Luckily I understand them as I am someone who can’t sit still, loves drawing or mucking around with pens and pencils when I should be listening and going off on tangents when I should be concentrating.

          3. WOW, your talents know no end–very admirable ๐Ÿ™‚ How wonderful to be those students, and to be a teacher who laughs and teaches “outside the box”.

  4. Hi everyone. I am Judy from Edwina’s Episodes. I was encouraged to try haiku by another blogger and have been hooked ever since!
    I love the logo and the idea of a haiku community, TJ.

    A word, a photo
    TJ inspires creation
    to haiku addicts!

  5. Hi fellow haiku enthusiasts,
    My journey began with a newly discovered joy of photography which introduced me to the blogging world. I then accentuated my images with poetry. Haiku was foreign to me until Ronovan’s challenges caught my eye and sparked a curiosity in this form. Through many hours of frustration to solve the puzzle of aligning words to create a meaningful poetic moment, I developed a love for the process and the challenge. A visual is a must for me. It inspires and connects me to the “real” world. I’m very happy to have been invited by TJ to this new community, Love the logo also, TJ. Very creative! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Good Day ! I’m Luna Shea, a novelist, poet, and a pre-medicine student. I’d love to join the community Sir. The Literature class I took, made me appreciate the beauty of Haiku and I started writing some pieces in my journal notebook since then. I made a blog just a month ago then I’d come across this community through mychoice360 (Ismath) and decided this morning to share some of my Haiku works in my page. I really want to be a part of the community ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Luna Shea! Lovely to hear from you and delighted that you would like to join the community. I will add a link to your blog in our Hub Page. Keep in touch and drop by to this blog for future Haiku based challenges and other events. Best wishes from Western Australia! TJ

  8. Awesome … this is a wonderful idea. I love to be part of this. Let me introduce myself to you.

    My name is Kristjaan Panneman I am an oncology nurse, but also a haiku poet. I write under pseudonym, or haigo, Chรจvrefeuille (French for Honeysuckle).
    In the late eighties I discovered haiku and it was wonderful. It became my passion. In 2005 I wrote my first English haiku, before I wrote only in Dutch, and I started my first haikublog: http://chevrefeuilleshaikublog.blogspot.com Several years later (2012) I started another weblog … maybe you have heard from Carpe Diem Haiku Kai … well that’s it.
    Ofcourse i love to be part of Haiku Hub, but only with my personal haikublog:
    http://chevrefeuilleshaikublog.blogspot.com

    Namaste

    1. I am so sorry! I only just read your last attempt to sign up as I have been away from the computer for the last few days. I have added you to the Haiku Hub page now. I have found there has been some very strange things happening to attempts to contact and comment at the moment and I am so sorry I did not add you earlier.

      1. I assumed the problem was at my end. I’ve been having terrible trouble on and off for a few weeks now with my comments going to spam and pingbacks working only on a sporadic basis. I’m not the only one, so that’s a comfort ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for letting me know you’ve tracked down my comments.

        1. I have had exactly the same thing happening. No idea what to do. I left a message for a happiness engineer but it seems all happiness has fled. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
