For this contest you are challenged to write a Haiku poem. Haiku is a form of poetry that only uses three lines. A popular format is to have the first line contains five (5) syllables, the second line seven (7) syllables, and the third line contains five (5) syllables but a strict syllable count is not required.

An Example:
The red blossom bends (5 syllables)
and drips its dew to the ground.(7 syllables)
Like a tear it falls(5 syllables)

- The Rose by Donna Brock

Haiku doesn't rhyme. A Haiku must "paint" a mental image in the reader's mind. This is the challenge of Haiku - to put the poem's meaning and imagery in the reader's mind normally with only 17 syllables over just three lines of poetry.

One entry per person. New entries only. Haiku poetry only.

The winners will be selected by the FanStory.com Contest Committee. A winner will be announced approximately one to two weeks after the deadline passes. The decision is final.

A Gift Card Is A Prize Option
The winner takes away a $100 cash prize. Second place will win twenty-five member dollars. Third place ten member dollars.

This contest is open to all members. Past contest winners can join the contest.

One entry per person. New entries to the site only. If you already posted a work on FanStory.com that work is not eligible for a contest.
