Freshkills Park Haiku contest

To celebrate National Poetry Month this April, we’re inviting folks to share ideas, impressions, experiences, and thoughts of Freshkills Park – in Haiku form.  A Haiku is a type of poem written in three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, for a total of 17 syllables:

Soft fields green expanse
Undulating horizon
Gleaming rivers meet

Prizes will be awarded to the top three winners.  Submit for your chance to see your name in print in our next Fresh Perspectives newsletter in addition to receiving a limited edition FKP hat.  Email your Haiku, along with your name and age, to by Friday, April 24th at 5:00 p.m.

  1. Good luck with your haiku competition!

    almost nearly lost
    in the shimmer of water
    several ducklings

    all my best,

  2. Once there was garbage
    But cleaner minds took a stand
    Now nothing but park
