Do You Haiku?

3347075333_2d4b45fd7e.jpg Freshkills Park is the 30-year phased transformation of New York City’s notorious Fresh Kills Landfill into a sprawling system of parks three times the size of Central Park. In honor of National Poetry Month, organizers are holding a Haiku (a type of poem written in three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables) contest to articulate people’s hopes for and observations of the project.

According to the Freshkills Park blog, winners are eligible for prizes and publication. Entries should be e-mailed, along with your name and age, to [email protected] by Friday, April 24th at 5:00 p.m.

Our contributions:

Literal wasteland Someone finally woke up And picked up the mess Just an old landfill Restored with a green promise And made land fulfilled An island of trash Turned verdant green, bit by bit. Soccer, anyone?
