Valentine’s Haiku Contest

posted by Breakup Girl @ 2:52 pm

In honor of Valentine’s Day, as with our past Haiku Contests and posts, we’re opening up a special page for readers to submit their best relationship-themed haikus in the comments — and now you can RATE THEM too! Fun! Slash-wistful! Plus, this year — joined by celebrity judge writer/columnist/funnyfella Joel Stein! — Team BG will select a 2010 HAIKU MASTER from the five highest rated entries. (Submissions are now closed but rating continues this weekend, and a winner announced in a special post on Monday.)

Centuries before netizens were distilling their thoughts and dreams down to 140 characters, the Japanese were doing it in 17 syllables! You are no doubt familiar with the minimalist 5-7-5 scheme:

Am I over her?
Why, did she ask about me?
Hey wait, come back here!

– Brian Thomas, Haiku contest Grand Prize co-winner, 1998!

Now that he is gone
I can say this without fear:
I do not like jazz.

— Amy Keyishian, 1998 First Prize winner and BG super-blogger

First look through the rest of winners from  1998,  1999, 2000, 2006, and more. Then read, rate or write your own, below!

Bonus: Also making a comeback this week: our customizable candy heart eCards.
