an erotic haiku contest
EROTIC HAIKU CONTEST
This is my first contest--so be gentle!
I recently received a book of erotic haiku . Now, I want to see what you can do!
1. Haiku or Senryu. You may use the traditional 5-7-5 format, or more loosely, a 3-line stanza, but not to exceed a total of 17 syllables.
haiku is a traditional japanese form of 3 lines of poetry with 5 syllables 1st line, 7 syllables in 2nd line, 5 in last line. Haiku are traditionally poems about nature. Senryu follow the same syllable structure but usually refer to human activity.
2. Any rating but please post all entries in bitem format. E-mail me if you have questions.
3. Deadline for posting is midnight Sunday 3/5/2006
1st place--Erotica Merit Badge
2nd place--5,000 GP's.
3rd place--3,000 GP's.
I am the sole judge and looking for originality, and that flash of understanding that marks true haiku.
