The Haiku of the Day feature displays a new haiku each day at the top of our home page. www.thehaikufoundation.org . See also our Haiku of the Day Archive.

Haiku of the Day for May 2023 features Guest Editor Michael Henry Lee’s collection on the theme of  the Afterlife. This is what Michael  has to say by way of introduction to this theme:

The poetic theme for the Haiku Foundation May 2023
Haiku Of The Day revolves around “the afterlife” and the
many faceted beliefs associated with a phenomenon we all
must certainly experience in some form or another. As the
late Jim Morrison said “No one here gets out alive.” It is
my hope that this collection of poems represents a broad
range of beliefs, traditions and, in some instances, a stark
absence of any beliefs at all.
