Half of National Poetry Month has already slipped by! Doesn’t it make sense to use these last two weeks of April to create something poetic and tasty? As motivation, we’re holding a food haiku contest. Send us your best food-themed haiku by Monday, April 27th. We’ll post our favorites on the blog, and the top haiku will score its author an awesome prize.
You remember how to write a haiku, don’t you? You definitely learned in second grade. Here’s an example:
This onion bagel
Spackles the hole in my heart
With its thick cream cheese.
If any brave individual wants to experiment with more complex poetic forms, we will definitely post those endeavors, as well, but for the purposes of the contest, we’re just looking for the ol’ 5-7-5. Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please limit two haiku per contestant. Happy poem-writing, everybody!
