Trash Panda publishes the best of English language haiku/senryu and other short form micropoetry of 17 syllables or less that uniquely expresses the reality of life in the Anthropocene. Priority will be given to poems that express nature and our life on earth as it exists today in the midst of the Earth's 6th great extinction event. Plastic bags may flutter from cherry trees, and herons may stand in filthy water.
