For some time I've been thinking about organizing a haikai, a linked poem, that is, multiple authors writing haiku based on a developing, linear theme.  Timothy Hicks and I have discussed this idea, but didn't sort out the logistics. I think it would involve identifying several interested poets, passing the poem(s) back and forth, and posting the results.

Please contact me through my poetrysoup inbox if you are interested in trying this.

    I have the same question as Eileen asked about Timothy. Where the heck IS that little sweetie? he is such a nice young man! If you do a string of Haiku, I am interested in seeing what people do. I think someone here once did it as a blog or you can do it as a posted poem and keep adding people's poems to it as they claim a place in the string and contact you via soupmail or something.

    Alternatively, you and any other poets, might be interested to post the idea on our fb Group (join the members and join in the fun), Let's Talk Poetry & Prose. I could pin the post and it may be thrown open to all. Each one could post a haiku around a central theme which you could nominate. That way everyone will see the progress and each author's contribution. I ran something similar last year, but it was a weekly poem on a website which I had created particularly for it, with great results. Please mail me if you need more details. Regards, Su

    Hi, Jack...Sounds like a great idea. I am not good at haiku, so I won't be joining the group. About Timothy he still on Poetry Soup? I thought he'd left. Would you please let me know? Thanks!
