Per Diem: Daily Haiku for April 2020 features Caroline Skanne’s collection on the theme of ‘Connection’. This is what Caroline has to say by way of an introduction to this theme:
CONNECTION: from Latin connectere, from con- ‘together’ + nectere ‘bind’ (Lexico.com)
For this month I invite you to discover and explore the different types of connections in 30 haiku/senryu from poets writing in the English language around the world. Each one has something slightly different to offer; perhaps a deep connection with the subject matter, a subtle connection between images, or maybe the connection happens with the reader. Other times the connection is no connection… The list is as endless as the possibilities of the poem. And, this is just what this selection will explore—the connections found in haiku and their possibilities.
