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

Maverick, just like bronze said... "Well, my mind works like that sometime...and to help out Zega, I think it matters how you pronounce ordinary, I do it like or-din-air-ee, but I think some people do it like ord-nair-ee." can it still be an entry? D:

@ Ernie, you copied mine!
My entry on page 1:

The pond is a pond.
No ordinary old pond.
It is just a pond.

I didn't even read that page! I'll make a new one.

This is cursed bad pond.
My friend Ziggy drowned in there.
His body remains.

Sorry, that line should say "This is one cursed pond".

Other than that mistake, that is my entry.

I don't think there are right now. Maybe in the future... but I doubt it? I'm not really on a position to comment on who gets what merits :P

Not as yet, but I'm contacting mod(s) about this. I tried strop, but he redirected me to a differnt mod. And I hope to get this stickied, but theres other contest (fakemon, pokemon, picture changing, etc) that arn't stickied, so I dunno...

Sure, but for future references, I'll use a dictionary to decide if the sylabuls are correct/incorrect. Just to avoid confusion.

Well, I just contacted Estel, but if he can't/doesnt help, then I'll try Zoph. I don't want to contact two mods right after the other, that would be weird when the thing there about to do has already happened, and plus, its kinda rude.

Well, I've contacted Strop, but he told me to contact somebody else. I've contacted Estel, but I've gotten no messages back on the subject, and Zoph has got her comments closed so now I'm just trying to find any mod really. I've gone for the three mods who seem to post a bit in the AMW section, and I feel the matter is too trivial to contact carlie...

You can try posting in her art thread, and we have 8(?) Haikus right now, so I think that is enough for a comfortable top 3.
