THE WRITER GAMES, Part 3: Short Skate
Welcome to The Writer Games.
If you're peeking in for the first time,
this is a competition in the spirit of the upcoming
Olympic Winter Games. Only, this competition is for writers
and does not include endorsements on a Wheaties box.
There are prizes, though, including blog interviews, medals, and something bright...
Today's competition is The Short Skate,
In case you need a refresher, a Haiku is a poem of three lines.
The first and last line contain five syllables, the middle line has seven.
Write a Haiku about Winter, Love or Sports
(in honor of the upcoming Olympics, and St. V's day)
You have until February 19 at midnight to enter any of the competitions.
For more details, check out Monday's post.
I can't wait to see what you come up with! This is a fine batch of writers, and so far it has been a hoot reading your entries.
My try: "Winter Springs"
Come grow old with me
We'll laugh at the gray hairs and
Count the wrinkles there
