Welcome to Haiku Horizons! This site is a haiku prompt page. Each Sunday a new prompt will appear. You can post your own haiku in response to the prompt and publish a link to your response. The prompt page will automatically display all links to the prompt.
Feel free to write multiple haiku if you desire. The only guidelines I will provide are to keep each haiku to 3 lines with no more than 17 syllables. The most common form is 5-7-5 syllables per line.
Feel free to suggest possible prompts under the Prompt tab.
You rock. I’ve really missed Leo’s Haiku Heights. I’m ready whenever you are. 🙂
thanks ! at last ! peaceful mind !
I was missing Haiku Heights…just came to know of this site from Rallentanda…Thanks for the start…
I was really missing Haiku heights. Thank you for taking the initiative 🙂
Thanks for joining in!
Wow!! A wonderful Initiative to keep the haiku-lovers engaged, oneofaclass!!! Rallentanda brought me here…thanks heaps, Rllentanda for your kind gesture.
Even I was really missing HH…:(
I don’t know how I misssed your comment for so long, but I’m glad you found us here, Panchali!
Don’t remember how I got here but I am loving it!
I’m glad you found us too!
This is a great initiative on your part. Every body was missing Haiku Heights, you have given Haiku lovers a good alternative;.
I have one observation. The post, depicting the topic is not visible on Sundays. Today is Wednesday. I saw it today. I checked it for the last three days/ but it was not there.
Thanks for your kind words! I schedule ahead of time each post to publish automatically at 10:00 AM PST. While I’ve heard that subscribers don’t get notified immediately, that is probably because WordPress has much to do and the message is delayed. When I look, usually a bit later on Sunday, I see it is active and someone has usually posted their haiku. The posting date is also correct, so I don’t know why you didn’t see it. I go directly to haikuhorizons.wordpress.com and find the latest at the top of the list. Best of luck to you and thanks for your contributions!
I take this as just another example of WYSINWOG (what you see is not what others get). I find it helps to remember that time is an illusion (lunchtime, doubly so).
You have an interesting site going on here. I am looking for some ‘new blood’ for the next Showcase at ‘the zen space’, and for subsequent Showcases too – I’ll not put a link in this comment, but just search for thezenspace(dot)wordpress(dot)com. I’m not looking for ‘same old same old’ haiku; 5-7-5 is fine by me, but I am also looking for people who can do exciting, in-the-moment things in very few words irrespective of form. Please feel free to visit, everyone.
Thanks for the visit. You’ll find a wide range of haiku here.
Would you care to recommend some for me, so I can contact the poets involved? I only have a few days left until my next deadline.
The Zen Space, I have several haiku on my page that I think may be what you’re looking for. Please feel free to take a look around. ~Cindy
I’m in! I love to write short forms and read good haiku! See you next Sunday!
Hi, I would like to follow your blog but I cannot find a “Follow” button. How can I follow your blog?
Under the picture at the top right of the screen you should see a Follow Haiku Horizons button.
Thank you for replying. There is strange thing going on I guess with my computer. In the last week or so I have no longer been able to see the “Like” button on the page of people’s posts, and I can only see the “Follow” button on some of the blogs. I cannot see it on this one. If you have any insights about this I would be really grateful for your help. Thank you, Deborah
Sounds strange to me. You might try a different browser and see if it makes a difference. When I hover over the icon, it points to https://widgets.wp.com/follow/index.html# so you might try entering that in your navigation bar.
You are brilliant my friend! I’ve been using Firefox. I also have Chrome and I copy & pasted the address for this page into Chrome and sure enough the blue button to follow this website showed up!!!! Thank you so much!!! I will have to start using Chrome for WordPress! I am so grateful for your help this problem has been driving me crazy! Much Love, Deborah
I’ve seen Firefox weirdness before. At one point I had to refresh it, which fixed several problems. See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=reset-firefox-easily-fix-most-problems for details.
I did it and it worked! I can see all buttons now! Thank you again my friend! 😀
I’m happy to be of help, and welcome to HH!
Congratulations on your fifth year! I am enjoying this site very much.
Hello. I’m hoping that all is well, but it’s been two weeks without a prompt. Is everything OK with the host?
