National Haiku Poetry Day

April 17 has been designated National Haiku Poetry Day, by The Haiku Foundation. This event will be commemorated in cities across the U.S. with haiku readings. I had hoped to host an event here in Portland, but as that did not come to pass this year, I decided instead to host a virtual event right here on this blog. To participate, all you need to do is leave a haiku in the comments section of this post. At the end of the day, I will put all haiku received into a new post.

The haiku may be new or previously written. If published, please list the credits. I’m looking forward to seeing lots of haiku!

Happy National Haiku Poetry Day!
