Thank you all who participated from near and far around the globe in the Australian Haiku Society Spring Equinox Haiku String. The theme of Discovery was a challenging one but once again the event has been quite popular, a bit of fun and produced a few gems. If you would like to revisit the String it can be accessed here.
The Haiku Foundation September Per Diem
The Haiku Foundation Per Diem for the month of September on the theme of Day Moon was selected by Madhuri Pillai. Introducing her chosen theme she writes:
“Since the beginning of time, the moon has always enamoured us with her luminous splendour, her tranquil visage as she serenely shimmers across the sky.
Yet in our busy daily schedule often we are unaware of her presence in the sky, either shyly dodging the clouds or brazenly challenging the sun, always unobtrusive.
I hope you will enjoy the collection of poems by poets who were inspired by the day moon.”
Spring is definitely making its way back into the garden and into the activities of a whole host of insects, animals and birds. The Spring Equinox falls on September 23rd in the Southern Hemisphere this year and to celebrate, the Australian Haiku Society will host a Haiku String on and around that date. Everyone is invited to participate and we look forward to your offerings. A submission form will be made available on the website at the time of the equinox. More information will be posted to the website soon including the announcement of a theme.
