A short blogpost today – as my son is visiting and…
IT IS HIS BIRTHDAY!!!
So I found a book title haiku especially for him!
De grote wereld
De vlucht van de adelaar
De tijd staat open
The Big World
The Flight Of The Eagle*
Time Is Open
*My son's name is "Nout" - which is coming from the name "Aernout"
meaning "Ruler of Eagles"
And of course I submit this haiku to Haiku my Heart Friday – the weekly event where haiku-lovers gather around our lovely hostess Rebecca to find poetry, inspiration, wise words and a lot of kindness and love.
Hello Friday, Hello Friends – let me start with a warning.. this blogpost contains
an OVERLOAD on PICTURES and it even starts with a VIDEO.
Are you in for all that? Then welcome, come on in!
To begin with this
We did it again! FEATURING #4 is out and I am majorly proud!!!
As you know we ship the magazine all over the world, so no matter where you live:
if you buy it, we send it your way! Purchase your copy HERE
On to another Book title Haiku now.
[Yes, I found yet another haiku combining the titles of my books... ]
Het hart op de tong
Uit liefde voor het leven
One’s Heart on a Sleeve*
Out of Love for Life
*English title: Scarlet Feather
And of course I submit this haiku to Haiku my Heart Friday - the weekly event where haiku-lovers gather around our lovely hostess Rebecca to find poetry, inspiration, wise words and a lot of kindness and love.
I managed to compose another book title haiku for you, but I am almost done with it as I used up most of the books in my bookcase that have the right syllables in the titles… I am at a point that I use titles that has been used in a book title haiku before – combining them differently to get another haiku – but the end is near… somewhere this Summer, these book title haiku’s will stop and I have to decide if I go back to writing haiku (submitting to Haiku my Heart) OR start a new series “Found Poetry Friday” (which will give me more freedom to ‘compose poems’ than haiku…) What do you think?
Anyway – for now – here’s another Book title Haiku!
OH MAN… the path to FEATURING issue #4 was not a smooth one!
We faced illness, technical and personal difficulties and set-backs –
but the team helped each other out and we have achieved to finish
the fourth issue with success. So now… drumroll please….
I am happy to announce that issue #4
of FEATURING is COMING SOON!
And this issue is indeed as inspirational, versatile and artsy as the former ones, if not more.
But hey, I am the editor-in-chief and the magazine is my baby so why should you believe me?
You better go and see for yourself.
It will take a while for the actual paper magazine to get back from the printing office, but you may want to pre-order the magazine because when you do that, you have the chance to win a Mixed Media Paper Craft Kit from Gauche Alchemy!!
We will give away 5 ACME Mixed Media Paper Craft kits to readers who pre-order issue #4 before June 23. The fourth issue of the magazine will be released soon after.
Now that is an extra reason to want to order the magazine, isn’t it? Why not go ahead then. PRE ORDER/BUY your copy now to have your name in the hat for our give away and to make sure the fourth issue of FEATURING will come your way as soon as it is released.
Done? YAY! Thanks!
On to the haiku and the rest of the post then.
