I want
to have lived in

For those of us that love to read and write haiku, The Haiku Foundation is a valuable resouce. It has monthly as well as weekly contests on specific themes.

In addition has a Haiku Registry: Have you published English-language haiku or senryu in an edited journal, either in print or online? If so, you can be part of the Haiku Registry. See Apply to be Listed."

Example of winning haiku:

autumn leaves
knowing when its time
to let go
— Asni Amin

Venus
the sweet sound
of her name
~Florin C. Ciobica, Romania

Yes, this is also my go-to site for information regarding haiku. A facebook page, My Haiku Pond, features contemporary as well as older examples of haiku - a refreshingly down to earth community you might wish to check out.
