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

Haiku's aren't my strong point, I seem to specialize in 40,000 character stories or less.

Bench at the shoreline
People splashing in the pond

The water is still

Surface shifts quietly
Scratching the surface

Silent reflections
Distorting, shifting, changing
Scratching the surface

No, it's seven. Unless of course distorting only has two syllables.

The pond is a pond.

There pretty good so far, and Bronze yours is just plain scary. And Zega, your middle line only has 6 sylables instead of 7.

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.

The pond is a pond
It's just a big stupid pond
Who cares, anyway?
