[Note: this contest is now closed to entries (though comments on the gallery are always welcomed, poetic or not). Winner announced soon. -MAA].
This one’s easy. Post a haiku poem related to one of the artpieces on my gallery. Just enter it in the “comments” field, along with your byline (name) and e-mail address. This will automatically publish the poem. All adult language will be censored, so please don’t use any — suggest and evoke, instead. Entries are due by Halloween (Oct 31st) at Midnight.
Arbitrary rule: I expect your haiku to be 3 lines long, in a 5-7-5 syllable pattern. No rhyme necessary. Can be humorous, horrific, or traditional in nature. You can enter up to three total. Anything more than that, and I’ll report you to the FCC as a perpetrator of spamku.
If I like your haiku best, you’ll get a signed copy of the Tor trade paperback edition of He Is Legend, a random horror gift from the Arnzen coffers, and your poem will appear in the next e-mail edition of The Goreletter.
