January 2013: A buzzing Per Diem month

This month, the The Haiku Foundation Per Diem goes entomological! Insects, bugs, arachnids… Cherie Hunter Day’s collection for the January 2013 Per Diem: Daily Haiku is full of buzz!

She says: “This Per Diem is a chance to rediscover: click of a deathwatch beetle, the taste of hive in the honey, and the architecture of a just spun web. We again visit with water striders, praying mantises, dragonflies, crickets, and maybe even a lowly flea.”

I look forward to the splendid haiku, especially since they bring back to me the insect life of my childhood.

The daily Per Diem poems (one a day, every day), can be found here

Happy New Year!
