April Artwalk

Artwalk Winter Poster 2016

This April Artwalk

Everyone is a poet

So our minds can see!

Join Kingfield Friday Artwalk this Friday, April 1st from 5:00-8:00 p.m. Enjoy local artists work and contribute a little of your own as part of Kingfield’s first Haiku Bomb Night! A haiku is an easy and fun poem to write. The First line consists of five syllables, the second line consists of seven syllables and the last line is five syllables to form a 17 syllable haiku poem. A Haiku poem does not rhyme. Often they describe feelings or nature, but there are really no rules and you can write a haiku about anything.  Here are some examples:

 an old silent pond…

A frog jumps into the pond,

splash! Silence again.


Over the wintry

forest, winds howl in a rage

with no leaves to blow.


I hear crackling

Crunch, of today’s new found day

And know it won’t last


And finally:

How do I fit words

and numbers of syllables

for a good haiku?


Come to Kingfield’s April 1st Friday Artwalk Haiku Bomb and see if you can answer that question!  We’ll also display a collection of classic favorites and some new photographic images, as well as, some new framing techniques.
