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).

  2. sanguine hue…
    unfolding across the gray landscape
    new spring buds

    adrift…
    a spring breeze breathes
    new life in this journey

    Risë E. Daniels

    a slight perk of her ears
    a sound so soft only she can hear
    …changing seasons
