Preliminary Announcement: Autumn Equinox Haiku String 2021

The Australian Haiku Society welcomes contributions from haiku poets worldwide to the Autumn Equinox Haiku String.

We will be holding the Haiku String during the day of the Southern Hemisphere Autumn Equinox, which occurs in Australia this year on Saturday 20th March, 2021. The String will remain open for contributions until Sunday 28th March to accommodate international poets who may wish to take part. Contributions may be made on the website during these dates only (not before).

Haiku String – Instructions

AHS invites you to share with us your original, previously unpublished haiku or senryu on the theme of Life’s Journey.  We invite you to explore a multiplicity of ideas in the String without necessarily using the term life’s journey, though you may if you wish.

The haiku will be linked by the subject of Life’s Journey. It is not necessary for each haiku to relate to the one before it.

  1. Please contribute up to three of your best previously unpublished haiku or senryu.
  2. Haiku should be posted in the comment box at the end of the post.
  3. Each poem posted must be original work by the poet making the post. Please include your name below as you wish it to appear.

Posting your work in the AHS Autumn Equinox String 2021 assumes the following:

Copyright of each haiku remains with the author. We request nonexclusive permission to publish your work on the AHS website and to republish it online at any future time.
