Welcome to Poetry Pea

Home to the Haiku Pea Podcast


Now available on YouTube



Help me to cheer things up a little bit.  The world needs more haiku just at the moment. As long as I am well I will try and create a daily Pea TV moment on YouTube. A short nature video with a haiku. YOU can help me by sending me a short nature MP4 video (20secs approx) in an email with a haiku to read. I can do the rest. Let’s bring a bit of optimism to the world one very small step at a time.

New for 2020

In 2020, I’m delighted to say that the haiku pea podcast will be starting its third series. I will be selecting a maximum of three verses,  per month, per poet, one of which will be read on the podcast and all the accepted verses will be printed in a quarterly journal. See the submissions page.


The Haiku Pea Podcast  is a bi-weekly podcast which alternately ponders haiku issues and features poets writing on a specific topic. You can find our topics listed in the submissions menu. Why not email your haiku and senryu?
