Biweekly Haiku Contest III
Rules and Entry Information
1.) Signups are determined on a first-come/first-serve basis. Entrants must submit an entry when they ask to signup. Spots
be saved for people, even if they ask to reserve them
2.) This is a haiku-only contest, meaning that poems must meet the requirement for American/English haikus. The form is based on the amount of syllables, parts that a word sounds like it’s broken up into, per line (specifically, five syllables on the first line, seven on the second, and five on the last). If a poem is one or two syllables under/over, they might still be accepted at the host’s discretion, but please try to keep track of how many syllables are in each word you use.
3.) Poems must incorporate a select theme each round. Due to writers’ interpretations of themes, entries will not be turned down so long as the theme is at least referenced in the poem. However, poems that have nothing to do with the theme at all will be disqualified.
4.) The submission period ends one week from the day this thread has been started. After which, the voting period begins and lasts an additional week. Votes are to be submitted via PM or VM to the host (i.e. Incinermyn) in the form of a ballot. Each person is allowed to vote for up to three poems, and contestants
allowed to vote for their own entries. Once the voting deadline passes, votes will be tallied and the three entries with the most votes will be announced. In the event of a tie or lack of votes, the host will cast the deciding vote.
Entry Deadline: Saturday, January 11th, 2014 (12:00PM/Noon, CST)
Voting Deadline: Saturday, January 18th, 2014 (12:00PM/Noon, CST).

A rebirth of self and all,
First day, New day, Whole
Shedding the old skin,
Becoming anew again.
Growing ever strong.
Amidst the dead soil,
A flower blooms from the ground
New life has been found
Chalk white bones in soup:
The lucid broth brings to life
Mine own, cold and dry.
A lonely acorn.
Hoping to be tall one day,
Just like its parent.
wings reduced to ash -
knowing that you'll rise once more
doesn't stop the pain.
I fell off the cliff
My soul escaping from me
I was born again
