Per Diem: Haiku from Around the World — July 2017


We’ve featured a new Per Diem on our home page every day since 2012. In 2017, 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.

The United States is the featured country in July 2017. For more information about haiku in this part of the world, see A Brief History of Haiku from the United States.

  1. Good reading! I’d like to add here another haiku of Cid Corman’s, his homage to Buson’s ‘butterfly/ temple bell’ haiku:

    In the shadow of
    a butterfly the echo
    of a temple bell.

    – Cid Corman (from nothing doing – poems from the 80s and 90s

    – Lorin
