I wrote this last year for a #fieryverse prompt on Twitter. I would encourage you to get on Twitter today, as it is #NationalHaikuPoetryDay and #NationalPoetryMonth. There will be a lot of haiku to enjoy if you look at those hashtags. Please leave some love for poets by retweeting their work or at least giving them a like today.

April 17 has been designated National Haiku Poetry Day by The Haiku Foundation. This event was commemorated in cities across the U.S. with haiku readings. I had hoped to host an event here in Portland, but as that did not come to pass this year, I instead hosted a virtual event right here on this blog. Thanks to all who participated!
