This a great poem, however this is a haiku and the syllable pattern must be 5 on the first line, then 7 on the second, and 5 again on the last. I am sorry if my specifications were unclear!
Excuse me, but according to my mom I did this right. But I'll edit it, OK?
It qualifies!! My English teacher had us do haikus and this is the format she used. I'm sure there are many different ways of doing haikus. Way to go!
Thanks! So you'll consider it, right?
Definitely!!
Thanks Dancer! I'm considering yours as well!

I love this haiku! However, you have one too many syllables on the first line. If you could somehow remove one of the syllables on the first line, then it could qualify. Other than that, I love it!

I only had two entries, therefore I have two options- move up the contest deadline to August 20th or close the contest without a winner. I would love more entries!!! Comment which one would work better. If you are writing a haiku for this contest, also comment below. I would love to know who would be entering
