An Eye on Haiku

Eye Haiku
Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
The magnet boards in the library have been getting heavy use as you can see from our haiku board pictured to the right. A haiku was not necessarily created on this day, but someone was indeed creative by piecing together this magnetic eye. We often times stumble upon interesting and creative uses of the words provided in the haiku set. For those who enjoy exploring the world of poetry and specifically, haiku, there are some wonderful forums where haiku can be submitted to online journals. Simply Haiku provides wonderful examples of this poetic form, along with many others. The Heron’s Nest and Roadrunner Journal, other quarterly online journals, allow budding haiku poets to submit their work for publication. Next time you are in the library, seek out one of our magnetic poetry boards. You may be surprised by what you can come up with.
