Second annual Freshkills Park haiku contest

National Poetry Month is coming to a close.  For the second year in a row, we’ve invited people 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. Here is one of our winners from last year:

a park in my mind
landfill scarred islanders’ hearts
reclaimed, restored land

Submitted entries will be judged by three terrific poets: Melissa Broder, Nancy Hechinger and Donna Masini.  Online glory and limited edition Freshkills Park hats will be awarded to winning entries.  We’ve had some great submissions so far, and we welcome more in the remaining few days of April.  To enter, email your haiku, along with your name and age to by Friday, April 30th, at 5 pm.
