Do It

Write an Exploration-Themed Haiku

Zachary Slobig

It's finally summer—that season of travel and adventure and exploring new ground. Maybe you'll board some long flights over the next few months for a vacation, or maybe you're staying closer to home.

Take a few minutes to write a quick exploration-themed haiku. Why? Cause it's fun, and who knows, maybe you'll inspire someone else to pack a bag for an unlikely destination.
