Flor Sol/Flower Sun of This Winter Solstice: A Call for Submissions

The poet Francisco X. Alarcón is calling upon writers from all over the world to submit haiku for a for a new Collective 2012 Winter Solstice Poem, in the form of haiga, or haiku accompanied by visual art. Francisco explains:

We all share the same dreams and aspirations of world peace, tolerance, and understanding with the whole humanity in balance with nature especially during the celebration of the new era (the Sixth Sun) in the Mesoamerican tradition that begins on the Winter Solstice (December 21, 2012) that in the Nahuatl calendar corresponds to the date “Four Flower” (Nahui Xochitl). In the Nahuatl tradition this new era is identified as the “Flower Sun” (Xochitonatiuh). We give thanks in advance to all who are willing to participate in making this human wonder something tangible and real.
