One-line Haiku Submissions

Submissions of up to 10 one-line haiku may be submitted via email to the one-line haiku editor


A one-line haiku is intended to be read as an unbroken line with no specified pause indicators. While they may often be able to be broken up into a classic three line form, they nevertheless allow for different readings depending on how the reader chooses to follow the poem's movement through its possible syntactical variations that would be lost if not retained in its one-line form. Others embody a singular headlong movement along the line through the images it contains bridging no pause or break to carry its effect.

 Two examples:

what became deeper of you i let in

as an and you and you and you alone in the sea
