Poet
I wanted to write about the State Fair because I feel like itís one of the biggest things in Syracuse. I go every year, so I can really connect with what it feels like to be there. Thatís what haiku are supposed to do.

I kind of imaged myself standing in the Midway, listening and pretending to see what I would see if I were really at the State Fair. I like the different types of people you can see at the Fair. Itís always very lively, and there are people laughing and talking.

The rides are exciting. I was trying to create that experience for the reader. Haiku are supposed to convey a somewhat visual and emotional experience. Itís supposed to feel real.

Ferris wheel stands tall
Laughter and screams of delight
The New York State Fair
