Haiku Challenge Day!!!! It’s the best day of the month.
This Cinco de Mayo, I have a special treat.
Straight from the estuary – meet the Muckety-Muck. This squeezable pile of goo is not as arrogant as its name would imply. The look of disdain is just boredom. It has waited countless years for sediment to build up, for the silt to settle around it. See the bags under the eyes? It’s tired! It’s bored!
This puddle of mud moves slowly. . . see the trail that forms behind it?
Here’s the deal:
Want to win this very awesome and never before seen plush? Well, it’s easy! I think up a haiku to accompany each piece I create. All you need to do is think up the haiku that best fits this new creature, and post it as a comment. You’ve got until next Tuesday night, May 12th, 7 pm to get your entries in – when the winner will be randomly chosen and posted that very evening!
Before you break out in a nervous sweat – let me assure you that haiku writing is easy and fun! Just think up a quick 3 lines made up of 5, 7, and 5 syllables (in that order).
Here’s a quick example of one of mine from a previous post:
A Predatorial Haiku:
My tummy rumbles.
You won’t hear me sneaking up
On my tippy toes.
See? It’s just that easy and fun! And the winner will win this very magical plush creature that they have so deftly haiku-ed. So get those haikus in – submit as many as you’d like! A mere three lines stand between you and a life-long plush companion, or a fantastic (and free) gift for someone you love. Tell your friends! Anyone can win! And stay tuned for more contests to come – I hold them on the 5th of every month!
Yay! Now get crackin’!
