Haiku News

I have recently discovered a new and exciting online project called 'Haiku News'
It is presented in the format of a newspaper and seeks to capture world-wide news items in the haiku (and related) form (s), with links to relevant articles.
Submissions are being sought right now and I would encourage you to take a look and then possibly send a poem or two along for consideration.
like the ocean
there are depths
in my heart
that will remain
forever unknown

wishing for nothing

early autumn -
in only a few short days
these leaves have turned
for change in you
I've waited a lifetime

on your lips
is it the promise of spring
that you bear
or just an illusion
of the winter sun

one hundred million dreams

the shape of windfalls
in dew

following three swans
at dawn
the river's silence
