I’m overjoyed to announce that Freya Pickard has selected all my pieces for the theme Translucent! Since I’ve been on WordPress, Pure Haiku has been a favorite site to read and now to be a part of it is very rewarding. I thank Freya for her continued support of my work!

The first piece is live and the rest will debut over the next couple of weeks at Pure Haiku. Please take a moment to read the rest of the wonderful poets which were selected. ❤

Freya Pickard




dark-lit seas
measuring infinity’s length
traversing star held territory;


wrapped up in velvet darkness
bright stars blinking past


sharp solar light flares
slants between blue, wooded worlds;
distant universe


the wideness of stars
agoraphobia chokes
no central anchor


world – keep moving
