Sheffield Shield Final – Haiku Poem Challenge

Today marks the start of the Marsh Sheffield Shield Final between QLD and NSW which will cap off the finish to a season like no other.

To help celebrate the occasion our librarians would like to invite you to join the Haiku Poem Challenge where we are asking you to describe the events of the Shield Final in haiku poem form.

Matt Fiction has been penning some magnificent haiku poems throughout the summer and now it is your turn to join in with the fun.

A basic haiku poem has the following structure;

Line 1: 5 syllables

Line 2: 7 syllables

Line 3: 5 syllables

Here is an example of how it works;

Steven Smith can dance (5 syllables)

Moves like you have never seen (7 syllables)

Incredible scenes (5 syllables)

You can join in the fun during the Marsh Sheffield Shield Final by tagging @CricketLibrary on twitter and using the hashtag #HaikuPoemChallenge when posting your haiku poem. We are looking forward to seeing what the Cricket Library community can come up with.

Of course you can listen to the latest episode of the Cricket Library Weekly Podcast where you can hear Matt Fiction reading his haiku poem of the week.
