First Challenge for 2012: Summer

Write in any Japanese poetry genre. You don't have to specifically mention the season in your work. Seasonal references can also include typical human activities for the season. Visiting poets are also welcome to participate.

Poetry posted in the Challenges for November and December 2011 will also be eligible for selection for the next Showcase in February. Poetry can still be posted to those challenges and be eligible for selection.


  1. under my feet
    soft spongy grass
    summer rains

  2. if I could halt time
    this glorious summer
    would crown my autumn

  3. all the party dresses 

    completely soaked 

    water bombs

    over hot iron

    the north wind 

    rattling leaves

    from the hakea

    the huge slow wingbeats

    of a black cockatoo

    house dam 

    nardoo tessellates 

    its cloverleaves

    on still water 

    the child dreams
