Summer Memories: Share Yours As A Haiku

Talk To Us

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.

    NOTE: The call-out for submissions has closed.
