Today your task is simple. You are to write a haiku and then post it as a comment back to me. I’ll pick a winner and they shall receive the first ever “MANICDOTE HAIKU AWARD OF AWESOMENESS”. This doesn’t come with a gift because I’m broke, but it does come with bragging rights and a cool image that you can post on your blog, facebook account or you can always print it out and have it framed. Who knows what you want to do with it? I won’t judge you.
Now, in case you forgot how to write a haiku, here are the simple directions. It’s three lines, and the syllables have to be precisie. 5 syllables for the first line, 7 syllables on the second line and 5 again for the third and final line of the poem. Contest ends 3/13/08.
Here is a sample haiku:
Never seen so many
sunrises in my life; this
should mean something. Yes.
