‘Haiku is a delicate framework whose spaces provide room for its
words to echo and resonate. It is about what is not said, as much as
what is.’

Jo McInerney (Boolarra, Vic)

‘Haiku present moments of insight into the natural world or human
experience. Haiku often suggest a unity in things, a point of connection
between the human and the natural world or between two aspects of the
natural world.’

Carolyn Alfonzetti (Epping, NSW)

When writing a haiku Carolyn aims to create:
“A succinct poem of 17 or fewer syllables when written in English,
free of poetic device ‘frills’ and overt writer comment on the subject, in which
an image from nature is presented to the reader for their response.”

Leonie Bingham (Nimbin,NSW)

‘A haiku is an evocative snapshot which captures the extraordinary
in the ordinary through keen observation and sensory perception of
the natural world.’
