Spring is a great time to be thinking about our changing environment and recording your observations in a Haiku poem.
A traditonal Japanese haiku poem is a 3-line poem with 17 syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Haiku often focus on images from nature and emphasise an element of the human condition.
Celebrate nature with a haiku poem and enter our Haiku Poetry Competition.
Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with Haiku Competition in the subject line by 5.00pm on Friday 19 October.
Poems will be judged by Maggie Brown and the winner will be announced at a poetry evening from 6.30pm-7.30pm on Friday 26 October.
This competition is open to all ages - children, young adults and adults.
The winning entries will win a prize and all Haiku poems entered in the competition will be displayed at Motueka Library.
