Home Planet News Online Issue 7 Submissions

Home Planet News Online Issue 7

from Frank Murphy, publisher of Home Planet News Online.
Deadline would probably be mid to late October


Hi everyone,
Home Planet News Online is now open to receive material for our next issue. We will accept good writing in Poetry, Fiction, Flash-Fiction, Non-Fiction (Memoir, Essay, Reviews, Etc.) and Artwork (Paintings, drawings, photos, etc.). I am determined to have this next issue out by mid-November.
Please (if possible) send material by email as an attachment in either Word or Page. I can also take writing from the email itself, but it is a lot easier to get it from an attachment.


This will be the first Online Issue that has neither Donald’s poetry or one of his insightful reviews. Let’s make it a great issue. Writing of reviews reminds me that I am constantly getting requests for a book to be reviewed. I have several request for this issue and if anyone of you would like more info on writing a review for us, please let us know.

A big thank you to Ayaz Daryl Nielsen for publishing my haiku in Bear Creek Haiku #151 January 2019:

nature’s litter box 

outside my building 

yellow eyes behind bushes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

sleeping cat 

her calm 

before the storm

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

window candlelight 

snowflake illumination 

on glass

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

under the chandeliers 

words turn 

to crystal

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

tears hide behind smiles 

a parched landscape 

waits for rain

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

snow angels 

turn gray 

urban grief

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

on a brisk 

autumn’s day 

a woman fans herself

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

morning shadow 

on sidewalk 

a cat crosses

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

in the courtyard 

a squirrel goes nuts 

over fallen acorns

tears hide behind smiles

a parched landscape 

waits for rain
