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The AHS invites you to share with us your original, previously unpublished haiku or senryu on the theme of Climate Change.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1.Please contribute up to three of your best previously unpublished haiku or senryu.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. heaviness …
    gusts of dust
    darken the sky
    crow’s caw …
    clods of earth
    left to the wind

  2. buds rot
    the stream breaks
    its banks

    threatening clouds
    waters flee from the mountain

    concrete bunkers cling
    to the mountain

  3. warm weather
    in my mind the smell of
    of the rai drops

    end of winter
    on the apricot tree blossoms
    the first snowflakes

    but where is gone
    the pretty wagtail
    scary silence
