There is now a National Haiku Poetry Day, held in April each year!  April 17, National Haiku Poetry Day, is a celebration of the genre of haiku, a kind of poetry whose origins date back a millennium in Japan; and more specifically, of English-language haiku, which has now been written for more than a century. Registered by Sari Grandstaff in 2007 and implemented as a project of The Haiku Foundation in 2012, it occurs in the heart of the United States’ celebration of National Poetry Month.
