A Non-Stop Patch Contest! (Temporarily closed)
My second favourite form of poetry is the Haiku - a deceptively simple form, with nice simple rules.
- Three lines
- Five syllables in the first, seven in the second, five in the third.
- Preferably contains a subtle reference to seasons, nature or time.
So, here's the contest - write a Haiku, a scifaiku or even a DIY-ku.
It's a non-stop contest - every time one takes my fancy, I will award a specially-designed patch.
Have a look at the work of Kobayashi Issa - you can even get random examples sent to your email address.
I have just awarded my last patch - feel free to keep adding haiku, but I can't award patches at the moment.
