Who’s up for connecting through creativity?  (Crowd cheers)  

Staff Council’s Employee Engagement Committee invites all staff to participate in the Haiku Project. 

Haiku is a traditional Japanese form of poetry - a 17 syllable poem written in three lines*. The first line has 5 syllables. The second line has 7 syllables. The third line has 5 syllables. While haiku have traditionally been written with a focus on nature, it’s certainly not a requirement. *(The 5-7-5 style is one variation that is commonly used in English haiku)

Here’s an (ancient) example:

Face frozen on Zoom.

Zoom is frozen on my face.

Mother Nature laughs.

Click link to complete form and submit poem at: MY HAIKU  Deadline: September 25th, 2020.
