Event description

Thug Comórtas Filíochta Duais Bashō Haiku cuireadh dodhaltaí iar-bhunscoile haiku a chumadh, i mBéarla nó i nGaeilge nó go dátheangach, agus a gcuid haiku a chur isteach le haghaidh breithiúnais. Is é an haiku an fhoirm fhileata is giorra ar domhan a tháinig chun cinn sa tSeapáin sa 17ú hAois, cruthaithe ar dtús ag an máistir haiku Bashō. Scríobhtar dánta Haiku i dtrí líne de ghnáth agus tá seacht siolla déag ar a mhéad iontu.

The Duais Bashō Haiku Poetry Competition asked post-primary students to compose a haiku in the English or Irish language or a hybrid and submit their haiku for adjudication by 24 October 2022. The haiku is the shortest poetic form in the world which originated in Japan in the 17th Century, first refined and championed by haiku master Bashō. Haiku poems are usually written in three lines and contain a maximum of seventeen syllables. As part of this project, haiku poet Maeve O’Sullivan has been conducting workshops with students throughout the country. Poet and acclaimed haiku doyen Gabriel Rosenstock is adjudicating the entries. This event will feature a haiku reading and the announcement of the winners.
