National Haiku Poetry Day

Haiku Poetry Day encourages you to try your hand at short, Japanese poems; stick to a syllable pattern of 5-7-5 and you’re off to a good start – but it’s much more complex than that!

To craft a perfect Haiku, you need to include an element of seasonality, and a ‘cut’ (either a word or through punctuation) to create a comparison between the themes and content of the haiku.
