CONTEST: Haiku, do you?

September 16, 2011 at 9:36 pm 2 comments

I was going to use one of those old etchings of bald William Shakespeare, but this is so much nicer, right?

You haulers are a creative bunch, and now you’re going to have the chance to prove it. All you have to do is 1) “like” Haul Buns on Facebook, and 2) create a haiku, or three-line poem, about being active. You could base it on your own experience or completely make something up. I don’t give a fig. But I DO care about sticking to haiku form: First line is five syllables, second is seven syllables, third is five syllables. Your poem doesn’t have to rhyme, but it can. It might go a little something like this:

The sun’s not up yet

And yet I don my Fuel Belt

I must be crazy

— or —

My hips never lie

But at Zumba they shimmy

Watch out Shakira

Be silly. Have fun. And please don’t take yourself seriously. Send your haikus to haulbuns [AT] gmail [DOT] com. Feel free to submit as many times as you like by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011.

But what do we win, you ask? Come back on Monday for that little detail!
