Per Diem: Daily Haiku from Around the World—October 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.

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

  1. In Ireland, we refer affectionately to The Union Jack as ‘the butcher’s apron’.
    Let’s get rid of flags altogether!

  2. just an aside- the flag you show is the British flag (Union Jack), not the English flag. The English flag is a red cross on a white background.

    1. Paul’s comment is probably technically correct, but the union jack along with the British national anthem have long been used at English only occasions – sport being a typical example. It didn’t even cross my mind that the union flag was not the right one to show when showcasing English haiku talent
