In this contest participants are to write an entry, with the soft limit of 3 verses, in accordance with the current theme.



This week's theme is

"Haiku: Autumn"

To elaborate further...
For a poem to be called a Haiku it needs three things



It needs to be structurally divided into three verses of 5, 7 and 5 syllables each
It needs to have a “cut” – Be divided into two independent but connected parts. Usually cut with a “;”, “-” or any sentence ender.
It needs to have a seasonal theme. In this case – Fall/Autumn... whatever you call it.



Since it's dangerous to syllable alone you should take this http://www.syllablecount.com/

You can also do up to three verses if you are up for it. No one will criticize you if you do less though. Quality is what matters.

:hmm right when I was in the mood to do some writing, this theme is so exciting I am thinking maybe I can steal a vulgar offensive erotic haiku, put my name in it and ask others to vote me. Worst case I 'll vote myself. Seems good.

Mentioning or quoting a person makes it more likely for your post to be seen.
