We’ve reached that time of year where we happily launch the Spoonful Easter Competition! Yes!!! We thought we’d make it writer-friendly this time so we’re CALLING ALL WRITERS, POETS & WORDSMITHS to have a go…
We challenge you, one & all to write us a seasonal/Easter Haiku!
What is a Haiku?*
Haiku are short poems that use sensory language to capture a feeling or image. They are often inspired by an element of nature, a moment of beauty or a poignant experience.
How do you write a Haiku?
A haiku is made up of three lines:
Line 1 is 5 syllables.
Line 2 is 7 syllables.
Line 3 is 5 syllables, like the first.
We are not going to be too strict about keeping it in a traditional style… just a little poem capturing everyday beauty is what we’re after… we believe everyone has three little lines hidden within them somewhere…
3 little lines… you know you want to…
The amazing Kelsie aka.CollectivityLane is presenting a print of her ‘Golden Egg‘ as our prize this year. Isn’t it gorgeous?!!
Perfect for Easter or all-year-round display, the prize will be given to our lucky winner… so get everyone you know to enter… set a friend/family challenge!!!h
We’re giving you the Easter break to consume chocolate and experience nature a little… get outside… go for walks… be inspired… enjoy the season & it’s sense of ‘newness’ in your Haiku-making ;)
Winners shall be announced on April 30th!
