HAIKU CHALLENGE for 9-12 year old Children's Aikido students

We are offering a HAIKU CHALLENGE for students in the 3rd Children's Aikido class (9-12 year olds).

We invite students to write a haiku (Japanese 3-line poem with 5,7,5 syllables) to submit during the last class on August 20th (Play day).  Every student who submits a haiku will receive a gift certificate for Kneads Bakery worth 2 cookies (one for you, one to share!).  

Haiku usually invoke natural images of the season:

Ah, summer grasses! All that remains Of the warriors dreams. 

- Basho 


short summer night-- a deer pokes his face through the fence

- Issa
