National Haiku Poetry Day Submission Deadline

April 10

National Haiku Poetry Day Anthology
Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that is non-rhyming and usually consists of 3 lines with a syllable pattern of 5-7-5. Usually, an element of nature, a season, moment of beauty, or an individual experience inspires haiku. Sensory language is used to capture a feeling, image or moment. As one of the world’s oldest and regularly used poetry, many poets wrote haiku. While the most well-known is Matsuo Basho, others include William Blake, T.S. Eliot, Richard Wright and Maya Angelou. Try capturing a moment or emotion in 17 syllables. English haiku does not always follow the strict syllable count found in Japanese haiku, for instance Philadelphia Haiku consists of a 2-1-5 pattern.
