Club 575 :: Starbucks

Brendan came up with a fabulous idea for my blog – a weekly haiku contest.

At the beginning of each week, I will post a topic. Per Brendan’s suggestion, week one is Starbucks. I have started a list for the next four weeks in my little notebook. I am open to suggestions, of course.

The format is simple – first line is five syllables, second is seven, and third is five. Don’t forget about your title if your creativity can’t be sufficiently expressed in those 17 syllables.

Add your haikus by using the comment field. You may add as many as you like. You can also post anonymous haikus. However, if you are selected as a winner, you won’t recieve the fabulous (sur)prize, which, at this point, is a surprise to both you and me. You are also welcome to add comments in support of your favorites.

(Plus I reserve the right to delete any haiku or comment that is way too far over the top.)

Let the games begin!

    Starbucks: the 3rd place
    Between home and work you lay
    Are you really essential?

  23. John Taylor

    Venti vanilla
    With skim, rationalizes
    the calories.

  24. John Taylor

    i can’t count to five
    because i am tired from work.
    maybe a starbucks will help.

    Sparky’s Espresso on 14th St.

    Starbucks is better
    than Caribou don’t you think?
    Though Sparky’s is best.

    This week’s topic is prom. Remember you can enter as many times as you like. If you don’t include your name, it might be hard for me to send you the (sur)prize.

    Good luck!
