MI Library holding haiku contest

Fort Huachuca’s Military Intelligence Library is committed to serving the information needs of the MI students and community. But, sometimes, the staff just wants to have fun.

April is National Poetry Month, and the MI Library invites MI Library patrons to enter their Haiku Contest, one poem per day, throughout April. Follow the Haiku format, and submit only your own, original work.

The staff will showcase the winner, honorable mentions, and others they happen to like on their Facebook page. The winner, chosen by random drawing from all submissions, will receive a gift certificate to a local restaurant. Anyone can win.

Sample haiku:

The first hummingbird (five syllables)

hovered at the red bud’s bloom. (seven syllables)

Sweet Calliope! (five syllables)
