Haiku ‘Contest’

I sup­pose I will go ahead and make this an annu­al event. I want some haikus from y’all. You might remem­ber last year…I had to wran­gle them out of you with sundry forms of archa­ic tor­ture. Hope­ful­ly this year there will be no need for rend­ing. I’ll even give out some sort of prize, though I do not know what that prize will be.

Last year there was only one rule, sev­en­teen syl­la­bles, but even that got bro­ken to good use. This year the rules are pret­ty stan­dard, real­ly. 5 syl­la­bles in the first line, 7 in the sec­ond, 5 in the third. It does not have to be about nature or a sea­son.

I guess tech­ni­cal­ly they won’t be haikus, but will be haiku in form. Sub­mit through the com­ments, or at aharvey@organicmechanic.org
