Thread: Haiku Contest

  1. #1

    Default Haiku Contest

    Want to win a free bottle of Montale? I will present to the winner of this contest (see details below) one 3.3 oz. bottle of Montale edp -- yup, his/her choice of either Fougères Marines OR Aoud Hoggar Mota (a.k.a. Steam Aoud).

    The contest itself? Write a haiku telling all of us why you should win. (Pretty freakin' simple, huh?)

    The poem does not have to be Hallowe'en related.

    Each poem must adhere to the haiku structure (if you don't know, look it up). Extra points will be awarded for cleverness and humor, so work it, girls and boys, work it. (Work it like ya mean it . . . shake your moneymaker . . . Sashay, Chanté . . . go to town . . . stick a feather in your hat and call it macaroni . . . be the dog's bollocks AND the cat's pajamas!)

    The winner will be announced 24 hours from now, or thereabouts, at dusk (CST) on All Saints Day.

    Get crackin', kids!

    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Great contest TV,

    Montales do not like my chemistry, so I don't want to enter the competition. Only wanted to say I'm very much enjoying reading this thread!

    Yeah I agree - Maybe in order to be eligible, the posters should select just one haiku, and edit out the rest. We all want a shot!

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    What is it to love?
    To be delighted in the hapiness of others.
    Why is evil this rough?
    To contrast good and evil in another.
    But then.. philosopher... why does it exist?
    For good to shine, and forever to persist!
    Philosopher.. do we know by reason in itself?
    Knowledge is like beauty hidden in a shelf.
    Why is knowledge hidden?
    in nature, naturalistic truths are nearly forbidden.
    So tell me then, philosopher... what is there beyond nature?
    The metaphysical form of the good by senses making its waiture.
    So how do you define an ethical base to life?

    Montale is Oud of

    Notice I have willfully inverted the 5-7-5 into a 7-5-7 structure, but then English syllables don't really correspond to Japanese "Moren" anyway.
