WSF Haiku Contest Winner!
Here’s a note from Washington State Ferries…
The cover of the Washington State Ferries’ Summer 2019 Sailing Schedule will feature a haiku written by Friday Harbor’s own Siri Lindstrum.
Warm pink rays of light
Reflects on shimmering sea
We watch the sun rise
Siri is a student at Friday Harbor High School, where last year’s winner Lisa Salisbury is a librarian. Lisa says she and the school’s English teachers promoted the haiku contest and used it as an educational opportunity. She added that Siri loves poetry and created a poetry website for a school project in January.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a haiku, as well as everyone who connected with us on Twitter for this contest. We also need to give a shout out to Washington State Poet Laureate Claudia Castro Luna for selecting our finalists.
And of course, congratulations Siri!
