AHS Spring Equinox Haiku String 2020.

Thank you for your contributions to the AHS Spring Equinox Haiku String 2020 on ‘Early Spring’. The String is now closed for contributions, but please enjoy the haiku in the String. Contributors have come from Australia and many other countries, which is reflected in the diverse range of haiku.

The Australian Haiku Society welcomes contributions from haiku poets worldwide to the AHS Spring Equinox Haiku String 2020.

We will be holding a Haiku String during the day of the Southern Hemisphere Spring Equinox, which occurs in Australia on Tuesday, 22rd September 2020. The String will remain open for contributions until Friday 25th September to accommodate international poets who may wish to take part. Contributions may be made on the website during these dates (not before).

  3. Under the clear blue
    Tiny leaves of green peek out
    A new circle of life starts

    Breaking their slumber
    Little buds emerging out
    In search of freedom

    Shrubaboti Bose

    Eggs hatched, beaks wide open
    Wait anxious untill dusk,
    Mother then brings food and warmth
