The Haiku Calendar 2023


spring wind
the crow’s every muscle
in its caw

   Polona Oblak (Slovenia)


the first time
my son cuts the lawn
drifting swallowtail

   Bob Redmond (USA)


soft sea haze
the memory of you losing
all our memories

   Helen Gaen (England)


stinging sleet . . .
the clatter of the old man’s
sack of cans

   Robert Gilliland (USA)

Frogpond, Journal of the Haiku Society of America

‘Don’t think that calendars are just for keeping the dates straight . . . If you were only interested in excellent haiku from this choice of international authors, this would be an exotic addition to your bookshelves, even when the years have passed beyond this one.’
