For the first time, Arts Illustrated celebrated the art of poetry for an entire month. This April adds a new feather to AI’s cap. This National Poetry month, AI’s Haiku Poetry Contest saw an overwhelming response from you all. Thank you for your support and participation. We had haiku poems flying across from various parts of the world right into our inbox. We loved every single haiku that came in and it has become a treasure for us to cherish.
