    Ferris Wheel Stands Tall

    I wanted to write about the State Fair because I feel like it's one of the biggest things in Syracuse. I go every year, so I can really connect with what it feels like to be there. That's 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. It's 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. It's supposed to feel real.
