Collected essays & articles

In June 1988 the number 1 of the then quarterly publication of the newly founded Deutsche Haiku-Gesellschaft e. V. It contains a report by the (until 2003) chairman Margret Buerschaper about the first general meeting and an article that answers the question of how the DHG was founded.

Up until October 2005, the title and presentation remained largely the same. Then the board of directors decides to give the magazine a new name. Henceforth the magazine is called SUMMER GRASS. The new name also marks a new era, shaped by developments on the Internet, new trends in German-speaking and international areas are included in the reporting in SOMMERGRAS. The magazine is becoming larger and more colorful. It is the figurehead of the DHG and for many members it is one of the main reasons for staying with the DHG.

Haiku is always at the center of attention, even if more and more related forms find their way into reporting. A keyword search in the search box below will promote the articles on Tanka, Haiga, Haibun, Kettendichtung & amp; Co. revealed. Three categories with long-term effects and many associated valuable articles are available as a finished link below.

Many thanks go to the founding member and long-time treasurer of DHG Georges Hartmann. With the diligence of an ant, he meticulously digitally documented this flood of articles. It was only his records that made it possible to make over 1000 articles available here. At the moment there are 682 items from the number 60 - (currently) 128. The remaining numbers (1-59) and the associated texts will then be added over the course of the year.

The exciting thing about this article is its liveliness and still its topicality in the context of dealing with haiku. In this sense: The treasure chest is open.
