Have you found yourself composing short poems, observations, one-liners (or...something like it...) in your head during these last six months? Well, even if you haven't - IC's Staff Council invites you to take a creative break and reflect on a moment in time by writing your own Haiku. Let's connect beyond the daily emails, Zoom meetings and (awesome) GIFs.  This 3-line, 17-syllable form of poetry is calling you. Concise. To the point. And so much more.  

Submit your words/thoughts today at: MY HAIKU for the Staff Haiku Project. Deadline has been extended to October 9th.  For information contact Staff Council members: Sara Jacobs and/or Sarah Shank at: sjacobs4@ithaca.edu or sshank@ithaca.edu.
