Haiku

Poetry Contest
For this contest you are challenged to write a Haiku poem. Haiku is a form of poetry that only uses three lines. The first line contains five (5) syllables, the second line seven (7) syllables, and the third line contains five (5) syllables.

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 in only 17 syllables over just three lines of poetry.

It's often about nature but we are keeping the topic open. Write about nature, feelings, or experiences - whatever you feel will work - that follows this format.

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.

The winner takes away a $100 cash prize. All writers will receive feedback for their submission.

Deadline: Contest is closed. Deadline was Thursday, June 10, 2010.
