AHS Autumn Equinox Haiku String 2023

The Australian Haiku Society welcomes contributions from haiku poets worldwide to the Autumn Equinox Haiku String 2023.

We will be holding this Haiku String during the day of the Southern Hemisphere Autumn Equinox, which occurs in Australia this year on Tuesday, 21st March 2023. The String will remain open for contributions until Thursday, 30th March 2023, to accommodate international poets who may wish to take part.

The string has now closed. Thanks to all the poets who generously contributed their work to this event.

Please enjoy the haiku!
