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.

Here are a couple pleasant ways to enjoy International Haiku Poetry Day:

  • Go to a park with friends or a lover. Sit on a blanket under a shady tree and read haiku poems.
  • Are you feeling creative? Try your hand at creating a haiku poem today. You might be amazed at how easy it is to do! 

Did You Know? April is National Poetry Month.
