Here's how it will work:

1. Everyone who signs up writes ONE haiku (this could be a more traditional haiku, which is about nature, or it could be one of the spin-off versions that is about something else. There's a whole KB article about what technically counts as haiku, but for the purposes of this collection we're using the term haiku broadly for convenience :3)

2. Submit the haiku in this thread along with a short (maybe 3-line) bio about yourself

3. Ideas for what to include in the bio: what you do on the site, what's your favourite thread/ forum topic/ literary centre category/ randomosity game / kind of chicken

Here is an example:
Liminality (any pronouns) is a poeter who often lurks in WriterFeedPads. Her favourite threads include the Worst Poem Thread, the Haiku Train and the Tanka Train. Please yell at her about poetry, pets and weird comedy-parody things, because that's her jam.


Also include pronouns, or anything else you'd like us to know!

4. We will compile all the haiku into a thread, linking to everyone's profiles, like a poetic catalogue of new friends

5. . . and there will be an aesthetic pdf collection in that same thread as well! :3

Need inspo?
More on what May Haiku is about
Here's the famous ever-growing Haiku Train on YWS, where you can find examples written by fellow YWS-ers.
Here's a nice little overview on writing haiku.

The first day of May,
my brain is fried from NaPo.
But haikus? Of course!
Someone's missing from your group, someone very important ... Where's Momo?

Spoiler! :
Niv(she/her) is a poet and storywriter, who tries to write a lot of stuff and fails miserably. She is fairly new to YWS, but is head-over-heels in love with the sight. She can be found in WFPs, doing homework and writing (or trying to at least). Feel free to PM her about anything, especially if you get info regarding Atlantis being inside the Bermuda Triangle. <3

IcyFlame says...



Spoiler! :
IcyFlame (she/her) is primarily a novel writer who occasionally starts a poem and then quickly stops again when she remembers that she is no good at it. You'll often find her hanging out in pads, procrastinating from her work or writing. Come and chat to her about characters with tragic backstories, melancholy endings and everything in-between.

blueca says...



Spoiler! :
blueca's (he/him) poetry is easy to spot because of his refusal to capitalize any of it. He loves writing short yet thought-provoking poems and reviewing the works of his peers. blueca is rather new to YWS, but loves the strong sense of community it provides.

Spoiler! :
whatcha (she/her) is obsessed with everything music and poetry related and is always willing to dive into a conversation with you about those things. You can find her chilling in any poetry-areas of the site, especially clubs like Poetry Readers and Poem A Week! Other important things of note: she is a very indecisive human bean, confuzzlement is her natural state of existence, chickens are baby dinosaurs, and potatoes are delicious.

Hi[/center], I’m HJYoung. I am 13 years old, and I like nerd stuff. I like contemplating about the most mundane things, such as the walking contradiction known as mankind.

The bestial cheetah runs
And ‘superior’ man thinks
But not always correctly

Magebird says...



Spoiler! :
Mage [she/her] was once convinced that she was a roleplayer and novelist through-and-through, but has come to realize she's also pretty fond of poetry and scriptwriting. If she's not lurking in the people's tab, you can almost always find her chilling in the RP Realm and scheming up a brand new roleplay~

between young viridian leaves
and say good morning.

roleplaying is my platonic love language.

Plume says...



Spoiler! :
Plume (she/they) is a short story and scriptwriting fiend. She absolutely loves reading other people's writing, especially other people's novels and short stories! You can usually find them chilling in the green room and writing reviews. Comma splices are her sworn enemy.


So gorgeous and green,
that mother hen and her chicks.
A desert beauty.
I was born to speak all mirth and no matter.

Spoiler! :
alliyah (she / her) is a chicken-poetry enthusiast, defender of the unclassified movement, and loves everything-poetry on YWS especially NaPo!

at some point rushing,
we remember again "breathe,"
lungs and lives aren't clocks
i can't love you if you don't know the difference between teal & dark cyan
&
you should know i am a time traveler

there is no season as achingly temporary as now
