Sunday, July 31, 2022 Haiku Death Match!!! Host Black Phoenix. Poets bring your haikus to compete in our annual Haiku Death Match (National Style). Poets should have at least 40 haiku to compete. Winner will receive $200. Brief open mic sign up by 7:15pm
Haiku is a formal Japanese form of poetry that typically dealt with seasons or transitions. Everyone who has been exposed to poetry has learned at one point or another what is a haiku in its basic westernized format. Simply put, it is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables. How the HAIKUSTERS choose to manipulate those syllables, or three lines, depends upon their own flavor. Poets in this Haiku death match go head to head with their best haikus. Who will be the next Haiku master!!!
