Update: Haiku Contest

We are updating the rules for our FruitShare Haiku Contest. After coming to the decision that the points system was a little too complicated, we’re changing it up. Three of us here at FruitShare will judge the haikus and pick the one that best represents a FruitShare fruit. Take a look at what’s currently shipping and choose your favorite fruit. Then, get writing! The winner will receive an organic cotton t-shirt from FruitShare.

A haiku is a short poem modeled after a specific Japanese form. It is three lines long, with a total of 17 syllables. The first line has 5 syllables, the second has 7, and the third has 5 again.

Here is an example of a FruitShare™ haiku:

Cold sweet delicious

A mini sun in my palm

Melts the clouds away

Submit your FruitShare haiku as a comment to this post. We will judge the best poem at the end of the contest, and contact the winner. Good luck!

This contest is now closed.
