En abril, celebre el Mes Nacional de la Poesía participando en nuestro Concurso de Haiku. Haga click aquí para entrar.

Create your own 17-syllable masterpiece on one of the following topics:

  • A DC moment / observed in DC
  • Something that you are grateful for
  • Seasons, or
  • Something small and wild.

Haikus traditionally have three lines of 5 syllables/7 syllables/5 syllables, though that isn’t an absolute rule. All haiku are brief and expressive. Poets of all ages are eligible to enter and may submit up to two haikus. Prize-winners will take home library swag and eternal glory. Winning poems will be posted in the library and on the Library website in May. To enter, pick up a paper form from the library or enter online with our online form.
