No, really. I dig on Haikus. I love 'em. For some inexplicable reason, they make me happy.
So. I present to you... Carrie's Haiku
Here's what I've decided, just now, to do. Because I'm all impulsive and stuff.
You write a haiku. (You can click the link if you don't know how - but I'm totally finding your fifth grade teacher and telling her that you weren't paying attention.) Submit said haiku as a comment to this post. I will be the judge, jury and executioner; the haiku that I love the most will receive a $50 gift certificate to Target and perhaps a lovely handmade bag or apron - your choice. I think second and third place might receive a little something, too. :) Open to any and all who stumble across my LJ and anyone I deem worthy can win. Enter as many times as you like, without, you know, being obnoxious. So.... yeah. poetry contest. with prizes.
Plus, the haikus will make me all happy. :D
So.... be creative! Haiku about your life, housework, children, school, fandom, rpg characters, dogs, cats, carrots, dust bunnies... the possibilities are endless. Contest will end Wednesday, January 14th at 11 p.m. Central time.
I leave you with an offering of my own.
His stupid stone owl
sits in the garden mocking
one day... sledgehammer
*curtsies to riotous applause*
GO FORTH AND HAIKU!
