We want to hear about your favorite summertime memories in just three lines, haiku style:
- 5 syllables in the first line
- 7 syllables in the second line
- 5 syllables in the third line
Think weekend barbecues, ice cream cones, ballpark games — or whatever summer has meant for you.
Ideally, your poem can be read in one breath.
One more thing: Try not to use the word “summer.”
Your poem could be used in an upcoming Morning Edition segment with poet Kwame Alexander.
You can submit your written responses below — or submit responses through a voice memo.
