There has been a lot of buzz about the first week of the haiku contest, aka Club 575. I am very impressed with everyone’s haikus. Last night during a conversation between Henry and Brendan about the contest, they commented that it was only Wednesday with over 20 entries, so far. Brendan challenged Henry to write a haiku analyzing each haiku. That is a little much.
I just wanted to dispel any rumors that I deleted a haiku because it was over the top. The author did that on his own. Sorry… not that much excitement.
Plus, feel free to send me your thoughts on future topics. I have a list that I am compiling in one of my notebooks. But maybe it would be better started here.
Club 575 is a great success all around.
Ike just composed this poem in honor of the contest:
Friendship Gate haiku
contest takes DC by storm
write your entry now
Love the haiku… I forgot to mention the deadline: Sunday at noon!
The next topic will be posted sometime between Sunday and Monday morning.
I am still not sure when the winning entry will be revealed.
Armijo friends write
clever verses on Starbucks,
but JT should win.
