Dancing my expression
A fire sparks inside me
Words cannot explain
The world caught its breath
As her arrow sliced the air
Charged with love and hope
Young san and Serena san, Omedetou Gozaimasu!
Originating from Japan, Haiku is the shortest form of poetry in the world. In a short descriptive verse, it captures a moment in the poet's life, or simply expresses the beauty of nature. Haiku is now enjoyed in many countries around the world.
JAL FOUNDATION biennially organizes the 'World Children's Haiku Contest', and the theme of the 16th contest was ' Sports '.
