April is National Poetry Month, and the Norfolk Library is celebrating with a haiku contest. Send your best original spring-themed haiku by Monday, April 17, to email@example.com. As the library receives them, it will post the haikus on its social media.
The three favorites will be featured in the April 21 Night Owl for patrons to vote on an overall winner. The poet of the winning haiku will win a gift certificate to Arethusa Farm Dairy.
For those unfamiliar with haiku, it is a Japanese poetic form that consists of three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third.
