Welcome to the JetWit Haiku Challenge! The challenge is to submit one or more haiku using the designated word.  The best haiku submitted wins the prize.

This week’s challenge will be judged by Robert P. Weston (Nara-ken, 2002-04), author of Zorgamazoo, a “rhyming, rhythmical tale of Katrina, a girl with a big heart and an even bigger imagination” published this year by Penguin Books and available via Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Powells. You can also follow Robert on his blog

  • Designated word (chosen by Rob):  “Prose” (you must use this word in your haiku; multiple submissions welcome)

  • Deadline:  Thursday, December 18, before 5:00p.m. EST
  • Prize:  Free copy of Zorgamazoo mailed to you.
  • Form: Haiku are typically 5-7-5 and have a seasonal reference.  (Though the form actually has a fair amount of flexibility.)  Ultimately, Robert is the judge.  If you look at his website or read a page from his book, you’ll get a pretty quick read on his sensibilities.
  • E-mail responses tojetwit /atto/ jetwit /dotto/ com

Note:  The winner of Haiku Challenge #1 will be announced later today.  Stay tuned!

    At my own musings
    I cackle with great delight
    Around me, they stare
