a haiku in honor of international women's day

March 09, 2011

Yesterday, in honor of the March 8 holiday, International Women’s Day, LACO invited our Facebook friends and Twitter followers to submit a Haiku focusing on women composers. We got some good ones, and wanted to share them with you here:

Melody of Life
A symphony of strong notes
Women of the world
– via Facebook by Leticia Marie Sanchez

Rejoice and sing now
Women with truth and music
Birth inspired souls.
– via Facebook by Haley Vianne

Higdon, Zwilich, Chen
Yi, Saariaho, Tower.
I know them. You should.
– via Twitter by @LeeHartmanMusic

Her hand slid gently.
Casting bow across taut strings.
Lifting the silence.
– via Twitter by @gil_benevides

Euterpe whispers
Inspiring odes to women
Not just for one day.
– via Facebook by Diego Mejia

Thank you all for participating in our fun Haiku adventure in honor of International Women’s Day!
