A Scifaiku Poem by Wendy Van Camp
why speed effects time and space
an inferred tempo
The study of time and space has always fascinated me as a poet. I learned of a group of scientists that use astronomy to calculate the speed of the galaxy and Earth through space. I wrote a series of haiku style astropoetry about their concepts. This poem is part of this series “Cosmological Speed” which published in “The Starlight Scifaiku Review”, Spring of 2023.

Love the concept and label. Insert something from nature, preferably a season or allusion to weather, and you’ll have an actual haiku!
In Scifaiku, which is what this poem is, a kigo is not required. It is following the rules of its form correctly.
