Win with Power Poetry
The sun feels warming
Power gives us much safety
The night is for rest
Poetry isn’t something you usually expect from a power company, but this haiku was penned by staff at the Island City’s Alameda Municipal Power (AMP).
The 126-year-old power company is celebrating National Energy Awareness Month and Public Power Week by hosting a haiku contest through Sunday, Nov. 15.
The contest is open to Alameda residents only. AMP staff will choose their top five favorites. The writers of the five best electricity-themed haikus posted to the AMP Facebook page will be awarded two LEDs.
Electric haikius are three lines: the first is five syllables, the second, seven syllables and the third five syllables.
