THF EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaboration

The Haiku Foundation has announced details for its inaugural EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaborative, a world-wide poem to be written on International Haiku Poetry Day, April 17, 2015.

The theme for this year’s collaboration is Light, in honor of 2015 being named the Year of Light by United Nations proclamation. On today’s Troutswirl (the blog of the Foundation) you will find further details on how the rolling poem works. On Wednesday we will announce the seed poem for the collaboration.

The inaugural EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaboration begins at 12:01 A.M. at the International Date Line, and rolls throughout the day. You’ll find a “seed” haiku on the blog at that time, on this year’s theme: Light, in celebration of the International Year of Light. Add your poem(s), in response to the previous post, or start a new thread on the topic of light. Ideally we’d like you to do this at dawn wherever you are, but we’re flexible — do it when you can, and as often as you like.

The results will become a permanent archive on the THF site.

Be a part of it — celebrate International Haiku Poetry Day, April 17, 2015.
