AHS Summer Solstice Haiku String 2017

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.

our hopes and dreams

  2. From the blue spring sky
    hard hail and soft pink petals
    fall together

    Early sun prisms
    through wavelet edges –
    swimming through rainbows

    Banal, quotidian
    but it could save a world
    four letter word – kind

    starlight steals away
    in birdsong
