    Would you or your students would be interested in writing a haiku in English about language teachers? The Asahi digital newspaper in Tokyo will publish short poems on the theme of teachers for an upcoming special issue on Oct 5, here: http://www.asahi.com/ajw/special/haiku/

    A complimentary copy of a recent Asahi Haikuist column on musical poetry is linked here http://www.asahi.com/ajw/articles/AJ201809070001.html

    shooting stars

    eavesdropping on the echo

    of the unspoken

    Hello. This is a lovely programme. I'd love to contribute. I could not find the link to share my haiku in the Asahi Shimbun link.

    my mind slips its grip
    dotted lines and letters sink
    under bloodied ink.

    Haiku stanzas fit
    Perfectly express the thoughts 
    In tongues limited

    I would love to get in on this, but fear I can not meet the deadline as I have just received my new teaching assignment and have yet to meet my students. Will this be an ongoing project?

    Hi there David,

    I have been overseas for some years but now I am back home.  Could you permit me to give you some haikus on any subject for your publication.

    Thank you.

    Best,
