Get your thinking caps on and get ready to enter!

As a reminder, a haiku is a traditional Japanese form of poetry. It is comprised of 3 lines (though sometimes less) and 17 syllables. Many use the form 5-7-5, where the first and third lines have 5 syllables, and the 2nd has 7 syllables.

Basic Rules (see bookfool.com for all the details):

Experiments in Social Networking : Tomato Haiku

haikuBy Vanessa Richins

I love Twitter!

It’s a microblogging website where you can connect with people around the world.

I use it to post links to articles I write and talk to other gardeners. You can find me here.

Tonight I had an experiment pop into my head. If I asked people on Twitter to write haiku about tomatoes, would they do it? If you don’t know, haiku is a Japanese three line poem with exactly seventeen syllables. The first line contains five syllables, the second has seven, and the third has five again.

It worked! Read the rest of this entry »

Tomato Haiku

Beautiful red globe
Tantalizing in the sun
I will eat you up

Oh, hornworm, be gone!
Every year you break my heart
You are not my friend

Sweet and juicy fruit
Juice drips freely down my chin
Is that a fruitworm?

Tomatoes are yum!
Reluctant offspring, you are
No child of mine

Welcome, tomato
Into my summer garden
Would you like a drink?
