Fargo Public Library Celebrates National Poetry Month With Haiku ‘Poetry-Tree’

April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate, each Fargo Public Library location will have haiku worksheets available through April for people to take home, write a haiku and return to the library to be added to the haiku “poetry-tree” display. For details, contact Zach at (701) 476-4026.

Not sure what a haiku poem is or how to write one? According to the Academy of American Poets, “A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with 17 syllables, written in a 5-7-5 syllable count. Often focused on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity and directness of expression.”

Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public. For a list of upcoming Fargo Public Library events or for more information regarding the Fargo Public Library, visit www.fargolibrary.org.
