Prairie State College Library celebrated National Poetry Month with poetry cranes, displays, magnetic poetry and by sharing your haiku with us on the library chalkboard. A big thank you to everyone who participated and spread the word!
Our next library chalkboard question is, “What are you plans for summer?” Stop by anytime to let us know, we’d love to hear from you.
p.s. The poetry magnets are on the chalkboard by the library carrels. They are there for your use whenever the creative spirit moves you.
It looks like Morgan Freeman is the winner, although he did face a surprising amount of competition from Robert Downey, Jr.
This April, we invite you to write a haiku on the blackboard. A haiku is a three-line poem with 5 syllables in the first line; 7 syllables in the second, and 5 syllables in the third line. It’s all part of our celebration of National Poetry Month happening all month long.
tiny thoughts wisely condensed
We’d love to hear your thoughts on haiku, other forms of poetry, or anything else, so stop on by whenever you get the chance!
