Add a haiku! You remember the pattern: three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third. You can also do variations on the haiku. Please feel free to decorate your page(s) in any way you like. When the journal is full, please contact dewpie@gmail.com to return it.

A Little Book of Linked Poetry

This is a sort of free-form on the time-honoured renga tradition. Haiku and senryu both are welcome, each poem must be inspired by some aspect of the one preceding it (be it a word, an image or a whole verse).

Please, a single poem per page and write only on the right-side (so, not on the back of another’s haiku), put your name and country on the page of your contribution.

When the booklet is full contact me (user ID seleya) and I’ll mooch it back from you.


I emailed the last person to have this journal but have received no response. It must probably be regarded as lost.

A Little Book of Haiku

Just as it says, a little book of haiku and related poetry (senryu, scifaiku, tanka and other Japanese forms welcome).

Only original works, please. Of course all rights to the poems will remain with the original author. All languages welcome, but please, if your poem isn’t in English, Italian or French provide a translation. One poem per page, please, leave the back of the sheet blank (write only on the right-hand page). Add your name, country and date of composition of the poem at the bottom of the page.

When the booklet is full, contact me, User ID: seleya, and I’ll mooch it back.

Haiku to you (Birthday Books Vol 30 of 41)

HEY POETS! Original haiku only. In any theme. Feel free to decorate the pages. When the pages of this journal are filled, please return it to bookmooch user: zenfish. Thank you.

RE: Birthday Books vol 1-41. I was very excited to read about the bookmooch journal project as I usually celebrate my birthday with art/performance art madness related to the number in question. In August I will be a delightful 41 years wild. I have purchased 41 blank journals and am giving each individual themes. When all the wayward art has winged its way home to me, I look forward to a local celebration to share and enjoy these books with friends.
