Use the hashtag #SummerHaiku.
The haiku was made famous (and inspiring and fun) by several great poets, including the 17th Century Japanese poet Matsuo Basho. A haiku poem traditionally consists of three lines with a 5-7-5 scheme, meaning the first and last lines have five syllables, and the middle line has seven syllables, for a total of 17 syllables.
The summer solstice will officially be ushered in at 6:07 a.m. on June 21, in the Northern Hemisphere. It's the longest day of the year. Granite Staters will get 15 to 16 hours of daylight.
Here is a haiku contributed by one listener:
