The fruit tree under the stars

The dazzling fruit tree
Sparkles in the moonlight glare
Silently swaying.

Knight

One fat lumberjack
Cuts down an ugly fruit tree
It lands on my head

Not yet. Zoph said she would consider it, and the contest isn't really 'official' until theres been about 2 or 3 rounds of it. Ask shayneii, he'll support that. Anymore questions on it, ask Zoph, shes' the one I've been contacting. You'll have to post in her thread though, her comments are closed.

Supported ^^ (lol)

We've had a lot of interest so far, I think this contest will go a long way! (particularly because of how easy it is to write a haiku) :P

Laden heavy with fruit,
it's twisted, smoothed limbs forgotten.
It stands unnoticed.

The problem is that this thread it covered in spam. If that was eliminated, you'd have a much better chance.

Sitting beneath it,
An aqueous apple falls,
Foolish gravity!

BTW, this is not my real entry.  Just wanted a tribute to Newton (unless you think it's good) :P
