Haiku

2014-02-24 16.55.40

A haiku is a Japanese poem that consists of  three lines of five, seven, and five syllables. Traditionally, these seventeen syllable poems are inspired by the imaginary from the natural world. However, as they have been adopted into other cultures, people use various sources for inspiration.

Visit the YA Room to pick from the inspiration jar (which smells like coffee, another inspiration) and compose a haiku. If you are proud of the work that you have created, you can share it at the Teen Poetry Reading & Open Mic Night on April 4th.
