Have you written a haiku yet today?

 

Write one haiku a day for the month of February! Why February? Because it’s the shortest month—for the world’s shortest genre of poetry. Join poets around the world who pledge to write at least one haiku a day for National Haiku Writing Month during the year’s shortest month. Or write haiku every day of every month, all year round, on the NaHaiWriMo site on Facebook, with daily writing prompts to inspire you. Find us on Facebook, and click the following links to find out more—including why haiku in English doesnt have to be 5-7-5.
