Much to my surprise I was the winner of this weeks Haiku Monday contest and can FINALLY display the coveted badge of honor (Thank you Foam!!). Turns out you don't even have to publish a post to win. You just have to actually enter on time!! Who knew?!?
Being the winner I get the privilege of hosting the next contest and choosing the next theme, which is....
By choosing texture I was thinking that I was making it easy on myself for the judging (I'm a little nervous, it's my first time). Then I started to think about it...texture is EVERYWHERE!! CRAP!! It's in everything we touch, everything we see and even in everything we hear.
So pick your source and tell us about it's texture using the basic format of 5-7-5. Submit as many as you like designating only 2 for judging. Anyone is welcome to join and visuals are always welcome. Please leave a link to your Haiku post if possible. If you need a little bit of inspiration or the word your looking for is right there on the tip of your tongue and you just can't spit it out, try going to this LINK (opens in new window). Here you'll find 400 words used to describe texture.
I'd like to thank Rafa for graciously donating (code for saving my arse when I had no clue what to use) a Rafa Original for my opening visual. Now to start everyone out here's one from me:
A silky soft sigh
Faintly caresses my neck.
A baby makes three.
All entries for judging are due by 11:59 pm (EST) Monday June 25th. I look forward to reading everyone's haiku.
Love ♥ Huggs
p.s. for those who didn't see my winning haiku for the theme sultry, here it is.
Thick and heavy was his musk.
His essence sultry.
