Reminder: Bumper-Sticker Haiku

Entries for this year's contest have started rolling in. You still have two weeks to send us haiku that would be appropriate for a bumper sticker. We'll turn the top three poems into actual stickers - which we'll send to finalists and as many other entrants as supplies permit.

Remember that haiku are three lines long, traditionally consisting of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. Your haiku should capture a mood or a season and use specific details and imagery. (See last year's winners, at left, for ideas.) No more than five poems per person, please, postmarked by July 15.

Be sure to enclose a business-size, self-addressed, stamped envelope with your poem, if you'd like to receive one of this year's stickers.
