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

You should mention everbody. And why no merit?


It takes time to judge you know. It's hard to judge everyone... and give each of them a few sentences... when I could be finishing my homework. If you want me to judge everyone, I won't post very much for each entry.

And there is no merit because a mod hasn't approved the haiku contest for a merit yet.

Haze over the field
Shields them from the gruesome view,
A time for mourners.

The mist makes you blind.
Through the fog, I see figures
Fat men are jogging.

Smoke and lightning flash
Sounds of thunder, screams of pain
A cold silence falls

Ok, if we aren't gonna have merits then after this week's theme some kind of incentive for the winner should be implemented. Maybe let the winner pick the theme?

Or I could do a simple illustration for the winning haiku, how does that sound?

Standing tall above
Mountains high above us all
Raise your peak higher

It isn't bad, except we are past the mountains theme XD.

Look back through some pages for the current theme.

Actually I'll just give it to you: Through the haze.

The haze darkened so
As though I were seeing white
A dark force unknown

>.< Right out of the top of my head like 5 seconds.

This haze his too goddamn thick
I can't see through it
