Hightail it for haiku honour
POETRY COMP DEADLINE LOOMS
BUDDING poets only have four days left to get their poems entered into the City of South Perth I ♥ Poetry Competition.
The competition is open to all lovers of poetry but is strictly limited to haiku poem entries. Haiku is a Japanese poetry form.
Competition judge Anne Dyson said the haiku should present one or two contrasting, clear images that re-create a perceived moment of experience, using a minimum of words.
“A good haiku will resonate in the reader’s mind, suggesting deeper meanings,” she said.
There are three age categories – 12 years and under, 13-17 years and 18 years and over.
Entries will be judged by poets Anne Dyson and Rose van Son, accompanied by City of South Perth Branch Librarian, Kerrin Brown.
Entries close at 5.30pm on January 31.
