Haiku ‘Contest’

Thursday, 5 June 2003

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
