Hi guys, it's that time of year again! It's EPW's 2nd Anniversary!  In light of this wonderful celebration, I have decided to put your writing skills to work with a Haiku Event!

So what's a Haiku? Well, according to Wikipedia:

Quote
Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry typically characterised by three qualities:
-The essence of haiku is "cutting" (kiru).  This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji ("cutting word") between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colors the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.

-Traditional haiku consist of 17 on (also known as morae), in three phrases of 5, 7 and 5 on respectively. Any one of the three phrases may end with the kireji. Although haiku are often stated to have 17 syllables, this is inaccurate as syllables and on are not the same.

-A kigo (seasonal reference), usually drawn from a saijiki, an extensive but defined list of such words.

In layman's terms, it's a very short poem that consists of 17 syllables: 5 on one line, 7 on the second, 5 on the last.

Are you rea-dy all?
Is this chal-leng-ing e-nough?
I real-ly hope so!


Your objective is to write a celebration-related haiku. 

Rules:

  • It must be in haiku form: 5-7-5. 
  • It must be celebration-related.  So sure, write your ode to EPW, as long as it can fit in 17 syllables.
  • No swear words (I can hear the "awws" already)
  • You may submit more than one, but no more than 10.
  • They must be from your own brain.  No plagiarism. I will cry (then dq you from the event)
  • Have fun with it!
  • Deadline: Friday, November 22nd at 11:59PM EST

Prizes:

There will be 3 winners, and 2 honorable mentions.

First place: 500 EC's or 2 event tokens
Second place: 250 EC's or 1 event token
Third place: 175 EC's
Honorable Mentions:: 50 EC's

Let's go and do this!
It's time to cel-e-brate, yall!
Go, go, go and WRITE!


*these corny attempts of haiku are brought to you by Sheikah's half-caffeinated brain.
