International Haiku Poetry Day

When : Always April 17 th

Today is International Haiku Poetry Day. This is a day for poets and lovers of poetry to savor and enjoy.

The Haiku poem is a Japanese art form. We were all introduced to this interesting Japanese art form back in our High School days. The Haiku is a simple, non-rhyming poem. It consists of short and simple, 3 line stanzas consisting of  5-7-5 syllables. The subject of the poem can be about anything: love, nature, life or any other topic that you desire.

Here are a couple pleasant ways to enjoy International Haiku Poetry Day:

  • Go to a park with friends or a lover. Sit on a blanket under a shady tree and read haiku poems.
  • Are you feeling creative? Try your hand at creating a haiku poem today. You might be amazed at how easy it is to do! 

Did You Know? April is National Poetry Month.


Origin of International Haiku Poetry Day

This special holiday event was created in 2007 by Sari Grandstaff. In 2012, the Haiku Foundation picked up on this holiday and began promoting it.
