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
Can't believe my eyes

The water is still
But I know you sleep under
Ever watching me

Silent reflections
Surface shifts quietly
Scratching the surface

Oh, ****. I just realized I used surface twice...

Silent reflections
Distorting, shifting, changing
Scratching the surface

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