Haiku Competition: Halloween

Enter your haiku in the comments field …

What is a haiku?

A haiku is essentially a very short poem. I’ve chosen the standard of 3 lines, where the first line is 5 syllables, second line is 7 syllables, third line is 5 syllables again.  And that’s it. Oh, and a haiku is FUN.

Are there any rules blah blah blah?

Just post your 5-7-5 haiku in the comments below before the deadline, and vote for somebody else’s by clicking LIKE (you can accept notifications of new posts). It can be funny, prosaic, serious, stupid – whatever you like, the voters (you) will decide.

You can share your post, reblog it, publish it in a book, stick it on the fridge – all work is your own.

Is there a theme each week?

Yes, to keep everyone on track each week, there’ll be a theme, plus I’ll have an attempt to get you all going.

Where can I get help?

This website will give you a helping hand: https://www.howmanysyllables.com/

What do I win?

Errrr … nothing, other than the praise of your peers, and that if you’re really impressive they might click through to your own website (leave your Twitter handle), invite you into your community, or even go on a date get married and have babies. Winners will be announced each week.


LAST WEEK’S WINNER: Edward

The theme was Movies, and this was Edward’s entry:

Eternal return
Wake up to reality
That its Groundhog Day

Big thanks also go to Rugby843 and Olivia Murray for their entries

 

THIS WEEK:

Theme: Halloween – here’s my attempt to get you started:

They knock on the door
I don’t bother answering
The egg smells for weeks

 

ONLY ENTER ONCE. REMEMBER TO VOTE FOR OTHERS, AND CHECK BACK IN OR RECEIVE NOTIFICATIONS OF NEW POSTS. OPEN TO ALL.
