Per Diem: Daily Haiku from Around the World—May 2016







We’ve featured a new Per Diem on our home page every day since 2012. In 2016, we’re pleased to continue linking this popular feature to World of Haiku, featuring poems from a different country each month. We hope you enjoy seeing the variety and breadth of haiku as it is practiced around the world, and coming to know poets who share the same love of haiku as you do.

Sweden is the featured country in May 2016. For more information about haiku in this part of the world, see A History of Haiku in Sweden.
