AHS Summer Solstice Haiku String 2017

AHS invites you to share with us your original haiku about Peace, a subject that is particularly pertinent at Christmas time. There are many associations with peace such as harmony, freedom and stillness. We invite you to explore these ideas in the String without using the word ‘peace’.

The haiku will be linked by the subject Peace. It is not necessary for each haiku to relate to the one before it.

Contributions are now closed, but please read the entries in the comments below this post. Thank you to all contributors.
