Issue #0 – First Blossoms

Recommendation: This issue PDF is best viewed in 2-page (side-by-side) mode (available in Desktops/Laptops/Tablets) as sometimes the artworks are spread across two pages for aesthetic value. To do that, download the PDF, open it using any browser or Adobe Acrobat Reader & click the 3 dots in the top right after opening the PDF and select “Two page view”. The issue reads just fine even in “One page view”.

Alternatively, if you want to experience 2-page view on your mobile as it is intended with the design of the journal, please download the following version of the issue and read the PDF in landscape orientation: Issue #0 PDF (mobile 2-page version)

Please report any inconsistencies/mistakes in the journal to me by sending a mail to, I will fix them and upload the updated issue PDF online.


Hope you enjoy reading this inaugural issue of Haiku Seed Journal. We would love to hear your thoughts about this issue, good or bad, whatever they are. We would love to see you share your haiku or your favorite haiku from this issue (along with the artwork) on social media. Do tag us, it helps more writers and readers know about us as we are still a new journal trying to find our place in the publishing landscape.

Once again thank you to all the contributors that have submitted haiku to our journal in 2022 and to all the readers who followed the journal closely. I know the submission and them the selection process for the #HaikuSeed prompts and Issue #0 were inconsistent in 2022 and I wish I could select more haiku to publish in Issue #0 but due to many limitations I had to leave out many brilliant haiku. I will run a tighter ship in 2023, so look out for updates and announcements about the journal in upcoming months.
