Echidna Tracks Issue 10 Theme
The theme for Issue 10 of Echidna Tracks is relationships. The topic is a broad one and may focus upon relationships of any kind. There is scope to explore psychological, emotional and personal connections or a want of them. The theme requires more than merely mentioning the ‘object’ of your relationship. Echidna Tracks is seeking haiku or senryu that reveal something of the quality of that relationship; it is the nature of the connection that is central here, what goes on in the space between self and other.
