AHS Winter Solstice Haiku String 2022

The Australian Haiku Society welcomes contributions from haiku poets worldwide to the Winter Solstice Haiku String.

We will be holding this Haiku String during the day of the Southern Hemisphere Winter Solstice, occurring in Australia this year on Tuesday, 21st June, 2022. The String will remain open for contributions until Tuesday 28th June to accommodate international poets who may wish to take part.

The string has now closed. Thanks to all the poets who shared their haiku. We are pleased to have contributions from many countries. While comments on haiku are welcomed while the string is open, comments that are not haiku have now been removed to make it easier for readers.

Haiku String – Instructions

The AHS invites you to share with us your original, previously unpublished haiku or senryu on the theme of Climate Change.  We invite you to explore a multiplicity of ideas in the String without necessarily using the term climate change, though you may if you wish.

The haiku will be linked by subject and theme, 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1.Please contribute up to three of your best previously unpublished haiku or senryu.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 Winter Solstice String 2022 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.

earth warming —
a faded rainbow lines
the ocean floor

  1. blue ice—
    the slogans that fade
    into silence

    kiln smoke…
    the horizon turns
    into the blackhole

    wind of change
    the birdsong echoes
    through the floating ice

  2. .
    global warming
    the cold silence
    in the fossil fuels
    .

    climate change :
    no trace of turtle
    nesting sites

    .
    Indian Summer
    running lukewarm water
    even at the dead of night
    .

  3. jonquil shoots
    early again this year
    shortest day

    the hyacinths
    shooting everywhere
    war in Ukrayina *

    climate change
    a place of last resort
    on the mountain

    *Ukrayina is the correct pronunciation of Ukraine
