Haiku Contest Week 4 – New Life
From my personal stash. Taken in Hudson, FL in July, 2014.
Your assignment, should you decide to accept it, is to write your own Haiku about this photo and include a link to your site if you like. We would appreciate a link back to this site from your site, but that is not a requirement for entering the contest. All entries will remain the property of the individual authors, but we reserve the right to post the winning Haikus on our site, along with the photo prompt, the award, acknowledgement of authorship, and a link to the winner’s site (if they have one).
Please type your entry in a new comment at the bottom of this page, NOT as a response to another comment. Readers can vote by clicking ‘LIKE’ on the individual Haiku comments, and may ‘LIKE’ as many as they like.
Votes will be counted each Monday evening at 9:00 EST and the winner will be awarded the Silver H (for Haiku) to post on their site. We will copy and paste the winning Haiku in a separate posting on this site including recognition, the Silver H award, and a link to the winner’s site at 9:00 am the Wednesday after voting closes.
A new photo Haiku prompt will be posted each Monday at 9:00 am EST for a total of 5 weeks (including the first Haiku) and resulting poems will be available for votes until the following Sunday at 9:00 pm.
Humor, tongue-in-cheek, cheeky, serious, stern, educational, quirky…let your imagination run wild!
