The Australian Haiku Society welcomes contributions from haiku poets worldwide to the AHS Summer Solstice Haiku String 2017.
We will be holding a Haiku String during the day of the Southern Hemisphere Summer Solstice, which occurs in Australia on Friday, 22nd December 2017. The String will remain open for contributions until Sunday 24th December to accommodate international poets who may wish to take part.
AHS invites you to share with us your original haiku about Peace, a subject that is particularly pertinent at Christmas time. There are many associations with peace such as harmony, freedom and stillness. We invite you to explore these ideas in the String without using the word ‘peace’.
The haiku will be linked by the subject Peace. It is not necessary for each haiku to relate to the one before it.
- Please contribute up to three of your best haiku.
- Haiku should be posted in the comment box at the end of the post.
- Haiku posted must be original work by the poet making the post. Please include your name below each haiku as you wish it to appear.
Posting your work in the AHS Summer Solstice Haiku String 2017 assumes the following:
Copyright of each haiku remains with the author. We request nonexclusive permission to publish your work on AHS website and to republish it in any future online collections on the AHS website.
