FAIRBANKS - We’ve received many holiday haikus from our creative readers, but there are still a few more days to submit yours in our little contest.
Deadline is the end of Wednesday, Dec. 21. We’ll publish as many as we can on this page on Saturday, Dec. 24. It’ll be a nice Christmas Eve treat.
Here are a couple of recent submissions
to get you in the
Trees sparkle with lights
Homes and hearts too, now aglow
Peace and goodwill reign.
— Nancy Gigliotti, Fairbanks
Christmas is coming
Kids gather around the tree
To open presents
— Hunter True, seventh grade, Ben Eielson Jr./Sr. High School
Remember, a haiku has a first line of five syllables, a second a line of seven syllables, and a third line of five syllables.
Submit yours to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it off at the News-Miner office, located at 200 N. Cushman St.
We’ll give a $25 Visa gift card to the winner, as determined by
our panel of haiku honchos.
