Tuesday Haiku Contest.
There's a special prize this week--not the usual oldie-but-goodie book that I find in the library book sale. Nope, the prize is a NEW book (only read once--by me), kindly donated by the fabulous people at Soft Skull Press.
So. Win a copy of The Haiku Year by writing a haiku about something that you see or hear or feel today. Here's mine:
Seams in the asphalt
tires pound out a quick rhythm
carrying me home
Not exactly traditional haiku subject matter, but that's in keeping with both the past contests and with this week's prize. Oh, and don't feel obligated to stick to the 5-7-5 format--the poems in the book are Western haiku.
