The Seattle Public Library invited children, teens and adults to enter a haiku poetry contest in celebration of National Poetry Month in April. One poem is being featured each day in April on the library website’s home page (www.spl.org).

One of the winning poems is from Wendy Brabner, who patronizes the Magnolia Library:

My latte: black coats  

‘neath Spring blossoms swirl Pike’s crowds

stir, Seattle, sip

Contest participants were asked to write a haiku that celebrates Seattle. The 30 best haiku were chosen from submitted poems.
