The haiku will be linked by theme and subject and 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 Please contribute up to three of your best previously unpublished haiku or senryu.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 as you wish it to appear.

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.

Looking forward to your contributions.
