A Haiku is a Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.

Well, that said, heres the rules:

1) The Haiku must be original (no plagarizing)!
2) It must fit the weeks theme
3) It must be submitted before the deadline
4) It must be submitted for the contest (no using works previously written)
5) One Submission per user
6) The Same User cannot win twice in a row (but there welcome to submit!)

Hopefully oneday the winner could get a merit...

The Deadline will always be a Wednsday, so the deadline for the first theme will be Wednsday, September 2. The theme is The Pond

(special thanks to 'thisisnotanalt'

Mountains are deadly
When you fall, you always die
I'm falling! Someone--

Standing tall and proud,
Reaching the heavens' zenith,
Earth and sky collide

Trenches are mountains
Growing downward inside-out.
(Time for the "Shift" key!)

I tower above
No one to share the sorrow
But the dancing sky

Whaa?

Sorry, didn't notice yours. Ah well, you don't have to change it - the same general theme between two is okay, as long as it isn't plagiarism on the part of either of the people. So it's okay. But, if you want to change yours because you thought of a better idea or something, no-one's stopping you.

As the strong wind breathes
Cutting through the heavy rocks
Mountains in deep sleep

Guess it isn't really that good..

Mountains in the night
The silence is unbroken
Gracefully peaceful

Wow, GuitarHero, I thought I was going to lose when I saw your entry. Then I remembered that you can't get first place twice in a row. But if you could, that would do it for you!

Quiet mountain lake
A hungry trout soon breaches
Startling the poor bear.
