EarthRise Collaboration 2016

Today is World Haiku Day. It is celebrated by the largest collaborative poem on the internet. This year’s theme, in acknowledgment of the United Nations’ designation of 2016 as Year of Pulses, is Foodcrop Haiku. The idea is to post poems at dawn at your location, but any time will do. Your poem(s) can respond to the “seed” poem:

I dag är det världshaikudagen. Den firas med den största kollaborativa dikten på internet. Årets tema är  för att uppmärksamma Förenta Nationernas val av 2016 som baljväxternas år.  Tanken är att publicera dikter från där man befinner sig på jorden vid soluppgången, men det går bra med vilken tid som helst. Dikterna kan svara på startversen:

where culture
begins — a rustic
rice-planting song

     — Matsuo Bashō (1644 – 1694)

This time I chose to publish the following, previously published poems:

I år har jag valt att publicera följande, tidigare publicerade dikter:

ground frost
the gardener
sorts seeds

Bodenfrost
der Gärtner
sortiert Samen

Chrysanthemum – issue 17

scented summer breeze
straws of rye sway together
before the harvest

ljum sommarvind
grässtrån vajar tillsammans
innan slåttern
