As the Aurora literary magazine celebrates 150 years, we thought it would be appropriate to celebrate our creative minds. So, we have a challenge for you: submit an original haiku poem that will be featured on the Onyx Anneau website at smwc.edu/onyx-anneau

All you need to know is 5-7-5. Five syllables for the first line, seven syllables for the second line and five syllables for the last line. Typically, these poems are about nature, but you make it your own. Go to smwc.edu/onyx-anneau to submit your poem.
