Simple Haiku Contest

Postby Nyufrost » Sat Aug 09, 2003 11:50 pm

Ok, this is not going to be elaborate and drawn out with a formal judging panel and all that. The way it works is like this ....

1. Do not post your haiku here

2. Do not post here that you are submitting a haiku

3. Submit your haiku to me by PM and it will be posted anonymouosly

4. Voting will be open to everyone via a poll that will be posted at the end of the deadline

5. If you want to vote for yourself then do so

6. You may submit up to 5 haikus

7. They can be on any subject as long as it is family oriented material

What is a haiku? It is a form of poetry which consists of 3 lines. The first line is 3 or 5 syllables, the second is 5 or 7 syllables and the 3rd is 3 or 5 syllables. So, it can be 3, 5, 3 or 5, 7, 5. Now, the catch is that each haiku contains a fragment and a phrase. Normally, the first line is the fragment and the next two lines are the phrase but it can be done in reverse.

Dumb, but effective. :bah

The deadline for entering is one week from now. So, start PMing me those haikus, everyone. :)

The winner will get 5 tokens and 25 ice cubes. In the event of a tie, there will be a second poll.
