Welcome to the Asahi Haikuist Network, a selection of seasonal haiku from poets living around the world. The column, curated in 1995 by David McMurray, a professor of intercultural studies at the International University of Kagoshima, appears on the first, third and fifth Friday of the month and occasionally as special issues. We welcome your original contributions. Don't be shy--send in your haiku and tell the world how you feel.
