Boston Kids HaikuGarden Parade
Due to logistical problems, this fun parade is postponed until next year.
Start thinking about your costume now! For kids of all ages. Find items that can be reused or recycled and make a fabulous outfit to represent a creature, a plant, a flower, a vegetable, a tree, a fountain, a worm, a snake - anything associated with a garden. And before, during or after this creative moment, write a haiku about your selection. Find a creative way to attach it to you so people can read it.
Haiku is an ancient form of Japanese verse that is not concerned with rhyme; only syllables.
The first line has 5 syllables.
Second line has 7 syllables.
Last line has 5 syllables.
Here is a sample:
Calm red spotted and happy
Above a flower.
We are waiting to finalize the parade routes.
