National Haiku Poetry Day History

National Haiku Poetry Day seeks to celebrate Haiku poetry. Haiku is a form of poetry originating from 13th century Japan. It is traditionally a three-line poem with seventeen syllables broken down into a 5-7-5 structure. Haikus typically emphasize simplicity, intensity, and direct expression. This day aims to raise awareness about the joys of Haiku. It encourages poets of all levels to read, write, and share their poetry together. This day consists of public events including readings, exhibitions, and competitions.

National Haiku Poetry Day was established in 2012 by the Haiku Foundation. It is observed annually on April 17th.
