Haiku from the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario
The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell,
Lieutenant Governor of Ontario
The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, graciously participated in the Consulate-General of Japan’s “Moonlight Haiku Challenge” social media campaign by sending us her haiku:
O Wondrous Myst’ry, Knight Companion, Spinning Orb: Together we rise.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Her Honour for her beautiful poem.
Through the month of September, the Consulate-General of Japan in Toronto is bringing the traditional practice of Tsukimi (moon viewing) to Canada with the Moonlight Haiku Challenge (#MoonlightHaikuChallenge). As safety practices continue to keep many of us apart, the campaign invites poets (as well as poets at heart) to connect with the community by sharing their appreciation of the moon through haiku on social media.
Further details on the Moonlight Haiku Challenge and how to participate is available here: https://www.toronto.ca.emb-japan.go.jp/itpr_ja/11_000001_00097.html
