Well okay, the blog will still be there for people to read but they won't be posting anymore. You can still buy their book, though. The book doesn't have a haiku about a crocheted skirt like the blog does, however.
Speaking of Haiku...
I decided to have a Haiku contest! I would love see some Haiku about altered art.
If you google Haiku you will find much discussion about the rules and whether you should use them. I say let's just start with the basics and if you break them a little...well, we call that artistic license in this house!
The pattern for Haiku is the following:
Line 1: 5 syllables
Line 2: 7 syllablesLine 3: 5 syllables
If you would like some examples, check out this site full of Haikus about lint - yes, as in dryer. My favorite might be the one that ends in "Lint, you complete me."
I did one really quickly:
Altered art passion.
New beauty made from old things.
It makes my heart sing.
I would love to see some Haiku from you guys! Also, wouldn't it be great to make some art to go with it? However! This is, first and foremost, a project about Haiku - so no pressure on the art front. Popping out a little Haiku seems like a quick, easy, and fun thing to do and having to link it to art might make it become a big project all of a sudden.
If you are too shy to post your Haiku on the comment section you can email me your poem if you want to share it less publicly or if you would like me to post it for you anonymously.
Have some fun!
