World Poetry Day – Haikus all the way!

To celebrate today’s World Poetry Day, Tti School of English had a competition to write a special form of poetry – a Haiku!

A Haiku is a Japanese short poem that uses language to describe a feeling or image. Popular topics are an element of nature, a moment of beauty or another touching experience. The verses consist of 5, 7 and 5 syllables.

The best Haiku, written by one of our students, wins a £ 25 Amazon Voucher! Here is the Haiku we thought is best:

Warm colours on leaves
A breeze blowing on their clothes
And trees get undressed

What a great Haiku!
Congratulations Caroline Roussey!

Thank you for all your creative submissions! We enjoyed reading all of them!
