Today Is International Haiku Poetry Day 2023!




Today is our global day of celebration of all things haiku, International Haiku Poetry Day 2023. Here’s the schedule of events:

HaikuLife Haiku Film Festival 2023

EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaboration

badge_earthriseJoin poets from around the world by contributing to the world’s largest collaborative poem. This year’s theme, in this time of political, religious and civil strife, is Reconciliation, with a poem by Chiyo-Ni to lead us off. We began at midnight at the International Dateline and will run until midnight here on the East Coast of the US.

  1. Haiku:
    not the size of the package,
    the surprise & quality within.

    — Michael Virga, a reader-writer & former teaching poet, celebrating NPM & IHPD again in 2023

  2. Haiku groups across Australia connected on Zoom to share their original haiku. Lovely to be a part of this wonderful growing genre.
