International Haiku Poetry Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on April 17
Today is International Haiku Poetry Day. This is a day for poets and lovers of poetry to savor and enjoy.
The Haiku poem is a Japanese art form. We were all introduced to this interesting Japanese art form back in our High School days. The Haiku is a simple, non-rhyming poem. It consists of short and simple, 3 line stanzas consisting of 5-7-5 syllables. The subject of the poem can be about anything: love, nature, life or any other topic that you desire.
