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
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 FreshkillsPark@parks.nyc.gov by Friday, April 24th at 5:00 p.m.
