National Haiku Day

National Haiku Day

By Elizabeth Lee , Apr 17th 2015

Read Team BookPal's creative poems and share yours with us this National Haiku Day!

Alongside of April being National Poetry Month, April 17th is National Haiku Day. To refresh your memory, a haiku is a Japanese three-line poem that consists of 5-7-5 syllables per line (making the poem a total of 17 syllables). To celebrate National Haiku Day, we asked our BookPal family to write their own haikus. Here's what we came up with:

Some of us dream of vacation time.

Haiku books in bulk

Some of us enjoy pizza... for breakfast.

poetry books wholesale

And some of us struggled a little.

But at the end of the day, it became clear that we're all poets and we didn't even know it.


Share your own haikus with us by leaving a comment below! We may even feature them in another blog post.
