Survey Says . . . THF Mission Statement 2021

The Haiku Foundation mission statement was amended in 2018, and now reads as follows:

Our mission is to archive our first century of English-language haiku; to expand possibilities for our second; and to seek active exchange with other haiku languages and cultures around the world.

As a result, THF has three primary missions:

1) to archive the first century of English-language haiku;

2) to expand possibilities for our second; and

3) to encourage and participate in the growth of haiku around the world.

All other haiku groups — from journals to societies to conferences — have been created to help the individual poet realize his or her creative dream, be it education, publication or social contact. The Haiku Foundation does not follow this model. THF instead is a series of projects organized not for poets per se, but for haiku itself. The realization of these projects will in due course help all haiku poets. Haiku has been very good to all the poets who have been fortunate to have found it. The Haiku Foundation is where poets go when they want to give back.>

  1. THF – an outstanding God-sent

    “Any healthy man can go without food for two days, but not without poetry.” – Charles Beaudelaire

    Haiku has been of loyal service to me as a haiku poet & as a creative person of Faith.:

    I was in need
    and the Shepherd has lead me to haiku,

    keeping me nourished, homeward bound.

    Haiku Foundation is instrumental. I refer to HF as the official comprehensive source for haiku – in abundance,
    the grand central,
    the great meade hall
