Okanagan Lake Haiku

  Okanagan Regional Library is now taking submissions of haiku poems about Okanagan Lake.

  A haiku is an ancient poetic form created by the Japanese people. A traditional haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. It often focuses on images from nature and emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.

The ORL will compile all haiku submissions and share them with our community as Okanagan Lake Haiku. Submissions will be accepted at until Aug. 31. 

 We look forward to reading your haiku about the deep and mysterious Okanagan Lake!





The parkade is currently closed to the public.
