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).

  1. the thin skin of ice
    will be broken in the dawn
    heated by sunbeams

    temperature difference
    cause noises in the sunrise
    listening in bed

    black birds are singing
    wakes me up at four o’clock
    sublimely alarming

  2. first bright spring day
    banjos and whistles
    fill the pond
    under the bridge
    fresh paint hides the graffiti
    first sign of spring
    spring is on its way
    the rocket goes to seed
    my lawn needs cutting
