Haiku Competition

August 3 @ 9:30 am - October 1 @ 5:00 pm

Free

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics might not be taking place due to Covid-19, but that doesn’t mean we can’t travel to Japan in other ways – such as learning about the Japanese style of poem known as haiku.
“The Old Pond” by Matsuo Bashō

An old silent pond

A frog jumps into the pond—

Splash! Silence again.

Follow Matsuo Bashō’s example and write a haiku, then enter it in to our first ever Haiku Competition, and go in the draw to win a prize!

Haiku follow the structure 5/7/5: five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five again in the third, and often vividly describe an aspect of nature, or a brief moment in time.

Taking place at Motueka, Murchison, Takaka and Richmond libraries.

Terms and conditions apply. Free.
