Global Saijiki

Traditional haiku regularly include words and phrases, called kigo, which anchor them in the cycle of seasons. Saijiki are collections of haiku organized by season, category, and kigo.

Join our monthly seasonal prompts and help us build a Global Saijiki with kigo from around the world.   :earth:

A haijin is a haiku poet.

Way back in the day that is what haiku poets called each other.  Here it is a band of folks who have been part of the dA haiku/senryu/tanka community for a very long time, or have been very active in the group for a long time.  As a new member you would request to be a group Member.
