5-7-5 Poetry Contest

Poetry Contest
A 5-7-5 follows the structure of a Haiku but without any limitation to the topic. While a Senryu, is primarily concerned with human nature. A Haiku, primarily concerned with physical nature. A 5-7-5 poem is a free form with the only limitation being the syllable count.

So have fun with the 5-7-5 poetry type. But it must follow the proper syllable count. A 5-7-5 poem has three lines. The first line has 5 syllables. The second line has 7 syllables. The third line has 5 syllables again.

    Example
    Don't eat yellow snow (5 syllables)
    It's not healthy as you know (7 syllables)
    Besides, it tastes bad! (5 syllables)
