Haiku Poetry Contest: When BYJUites Unveiled Their Inner Poets | World Poetry Day

Team StoryWeavers|March 21, 2022, 14:21 IST| 2
Follow us on,

On World Poetry Day, we are proud to bring you, our very own in-house poets and poetesses, who blew our minds with their incredible haikus.

For the uninitiated, a haiku is a type of short-form poetry, originating in Japan. Known for the simplicity and directness of expression, these poems are usually three lines long. And they often focus on images of nature. Sounds simple right?

But wait till you read some of the haikus that BYJUites penned for our Haiku Poetry Contest. Packed with powerful imageries, the winning entries will make you pause and think!

Sard hawa ke jhokon ka, shakhon se guzarna zaroori hai
Har roz naye suraj ka phadon se ubharna zaroori hai
Iss neele aasman me unn safed badlon ka bikharna zaroori hai.
