My Haiku: Why I Write

Peter DeHaan’s haiku, “Why I Write,” was selected as a finalist for the literary publication Imagine This! An ArtPrize Anthology.

Imagine This! An ArtPrize Anthology

But you don’t need to buy the book to read it. Here is Peter’s award-winning poem:

Why I Write

Linking letters and

The anthology adds the written word as a new art form to the acclaimed ArtPrize art festival. ArtPrize is one of the world’s largest art competitions and is held each year in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

“I’m honored to have my poem appear in this inaugural work, that showcases writing for the ArtPrize festival,” said finalist Peter DeHaan.

“It also succinctly shares my mission statement.”
