Last year’s haiku contest was such a success, we’re goin’ for round 2. Show off your creative chops by submitting a Sporcle-themed haiku.

What is haiku?

Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry consisting of 17 syllables (also known as on or morae). There are three lines, consisting of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.  Haiku is known for juxtaposing–or placing next to each other–two  contrasting images.

There are numerous tutorials on how to write haiku, for example this one. There are no tutorials on writing a Sporcle haiku. But we’re quite friendly and accepting.
