Welcome to Friday's Creativity Crate. How much can you say in 17 syllables? Let's find out together.
April is National Poetry Month and today is International Haiku Day. A haiku is a poem consisting of three short lines that do not rhyme. The origins of haiku poems can be traced back as far as the 9th century.
To write a haiku, write a poem that's 3 lines long and make sure each line has the right number of syllables. Give the first line 5 syllables, the second line 7 syllables and the third line 5 syllables.
You can chose to share your haiku with us, which we'll later share with the world on our Facebook page, or you can keep your creativity to yourself. If you chose to upload your work, please submit by April 19 at 2 p.m. EST. You may submit as many haikus as you'd like.
PS: Rise and shine with us tomorrow morning. Yoga Bird will host a free, live-stream yoga session on the Alliance for the Arts GreenMarket page Saturday, April 18 at 9:30 a.m.
