Holiday Greeting & New Year's Haiku Challenge

Hungarian Postage Stamp

even the cormorants
on holiday today...
translated by David G. Lanoue

It's time for a holiday break, so there will be no Wednesday Haiku or weekend post this week. 

But for those of us who spend some quiet time at year's end and, perhaps, long for a little something to occupy the mind, here you go: a New Years haiku challenge.

Send your best unpublished New Year themed haiku between now and 11:59 pm December 31st. If your poem is selected, you will receive a free 6 issue subscription (or 6 issue extension to your current subscription) to Lilliput Review and the posting of the 'winning' haiku on Issa's Untidy Hut on January 1st.

Send to: lilliput review AT gmail DOT com

Cheers to all, and happy, peaceful holidays and a wonderful new year.

On New Year's Day
each thought a loneliness
as winter dusk descends
