Contest One of Three by the REV: Haikus(Winner chosen)

Postby Cole » Sat Jun 18, 2005 8:50 pm

Now, for those of you who don't know, a Haiku is a Japanese style of poetry that's three lines. The first line is five syllables, the second is seven, the third is five syllables again. Example follows:

Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.

By syllables/phonics(hyphens sperate the syllables.)
Thre-thengs-ar-sir-tun
Deth-tak-ses-and-lost-dah-tuh
Gess-wich-has-uh-kird

Now, this won't be valid for this contest because we have a theme and that doesn't fit the theme. To keep the roots of Haiku and my sensibilities, our theme will be... summer.

The contest will end 20050625 or one week from now at midnight.

The winner will receive absolutely nothing except kudos and possibly a 2-3000 word short story when I have the time to write it on anything they want.

The winner will be selected by myself so you better be spry because I'm a very hard to please man. Ask any of my exes.

Edit: Forgot to mention, enter as many times as you like. Haiku is an art and art must be practiced.

My entry:

Summer leaves crack brown,
Heat evaporates the pond,
Flowers sprout in fields.

I figured since I stressed we needed it so much, I may as well do some sort of post work up in here.

Ok here's mine:

Over there rain falls
On my head sun is shining
In green grass I play

Is that okay to do or are we suppose to separate the syllables like you did?

A stubborn puddle
In summer's heat, refusing

Seeing the first light,
Taking the long route through life,
Finding the darkness.

The sun shines brightly
Yet at work, I sit inside
Summer means nothing.

Holy fucking fuck
I'm sweating out my eyelids
I hate the sunlight

Summer is crappy
It's just hot, sticky, sweaty
Spiders everywhere

I sniff my armpit
I'm a monster, I'm a freak
Summer made me this!

Summer long boredom,
Now is the time for gaming,
Late-night RPGs.

Pretty random. Wow, never noticed the them. Changed it to match.

Trees are growing fast,
Mountains are eroding quick,
Life is changing now.

Yeah, really quick ones from me.

Like grass in the wind
I constantly sway, between
XBox and Gamecube


.. I don't actually have an XBox, but Playstation is one syllable too long.

The joys of summer
Are lost on one like myself,
Weekend classes SUCK.

The bell tolls for thee,
Darkness surrounding all life,
A last gasp of air.

Grim tales told at night,
Making all scared by the fright,
Wait for morning light.

Take the coins and throw,
Into the well they shall go,
That is what I know.

Four more Haikus now,
Seeing the contest through all,
Risking it on chance.

Wells, we haves a winnair.

Added after 2 minutes:

Aye. Spike wins. I had to have some other people help judge since I have a crush on her but they made it unanimous and it turned out she was the best entrant and not just me choosing her.... Jeez, I'm babbling now.

Added after 1 minutes:

If she wasn't so adorable, this mighta been easier on me.... I spent three hours staring at

Mischif:
Over there rain falls
On my head sun is shining
In green grass I play
spikecomix:
The sun shines brightly
Yet at work, I sit inside
Summer means nothing.
Ortega:
Like grass in the wind

XBox and Gamecube

until we finally decided on Spike's.
