The winning entries and other selected entries will be printed on free City of South Perth Library bookmarks and given out during the Library Lover’s month of February.


According to  Andrew Lansdown ( Perth, WA) via

“Haiku are poems modelled on the seventeen-syllable three-line poems of the ancient Japanese. Being poems, haiku are a form of literature and may employ literary techniques and may be judged by literary standards. Generally speaking, haiku stir emotion and stimulate reflection in the reader through simple precise objective depictions of things in nature.”

Haiku are pebbles

poets lob into the pond

of our emotions.
