Club 575 :: Prom

Let me just say that last week’s inaugural Club 575 :: Starbucks haiku contest was amazing. I love all of the haikus. So to keep the momentum going, I had to select a topic that is sure to bring back some favorite memories and inspire some great poems – the high school prom.

This topic alone inspired at least a dozen pages of haikus last spring. My high school classmates and I perfected our craft of writing haikus thinking back to fabulous memories of South Stokes High School Class of ’92. It even got to the point where I was constantly counting syllables on my fingers throughout the day.

I am sorry that I don’t have a picture from that night to post. Instead I just have the two above that Henry found on the internet. If anyone would like to submit a picture with their haiku, just let me know.

Everyone gets to vote for the winner of Club 575 :: Starbucks. I am in the process of creating an easy online poll. At this point I think that I will select the top nine entries and then let all of you vote. I think that the service only allows one vote per 24 hours. Granted since this is still the first full week of the contest, anything is open to change. Check back this week for more info.

I plan to announce the winner next weekend along with Week 3’s topic.

Good luck!

    Peer pressure, perhaps.
    Much money spent, and for what?
    I can’t remember.
