Did you know April is National Poetry Month? Poets.org has given us “30 Ways to Celebrate.” My favorite on the list is:
Put a poem in a letter.
Except, I modified it a bit. I’m going to put poems (haiku) on my blog–every day in the month of April.
And, I invite you to join me. Below I’ve posted a theme for each day in April. I’m going to brainstorm them right now, so there’s no telling what I’ll come up with. Here’s the list:
23) Your favorite character
25) Your favorite food
Each day, I’ll post a haiku with the “Theme of the Day.” If you’d like to post a haiku, I invite you to leave it in the comments.
I’ll be giving away a copy of my new book, Life: Haiku by Haiku to three people. All you have to do to enter an original haiku in the comments. For each haiku you leave throughout April, you’ll be entered once.
Your haiku for that date must be about the “Theme of the Day” to be entered in the drawing. (Including the theme word in the haiku isn’t necessary, however.)
On May 1, I’ll draw three names as winners!
I love haiku, and I look forward to seeing all the different ways we “see” the themes I’ve listed above.
