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')

A haiku is a poem composed of 3 lines, 5 syllables for the first and last line, and seven for the middle.

The water ripples
The stone skips across the pond
The frogs leap away

Nope, still not right XD

Five syllables please
Seven will be good right here
Five more for here too

There, that is a Haiku about the structure of a haiku.

Lol. Unfortunately bronze, this week's theme is a pond, not proper haiku etiquette.

Syllabuls are right, but the reference to the pond is subliminal.

But I have one of these, so It makes sense.

*taps forehead*

Why do I hear an Echo?

Tap, Tap, Tap...

I just can't win. I hold this one out, until round two comes. I know I will lose.

And the first line has 6 syllables, so I suggest you fix the whole thing.
