Good explanation of Haikus for my older kids. In April, the whole front of my circulation desk becomes a poetry wall. I buy cheap decorative post-its from target and the kids are allowed to write a poem on them and stick it to the wall. At the end of the month we host a poetry night and students can read one of those poems!

Why the ‘Ghost Ship’ Was Invisible in Oakland, Until 36 Died

Ghost Ship Death Trap (haiku) "Thirty-six people - died yet the Fire Station - could see the Ghost Ship" The warehouse is close to a firehouse. Yet amid haphazard inspection protocols, it became the site of America’s worst structure fire in a decade.

“I turned silences and nights into words. What was unutterable, I wrote down. I made the whirling world stand still.” ~ Arthur Rimbaud, A Season in Hell/The Drunken Boat #Poetry
