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.

  1. Aha–didn’t read the directions carefully the first time.

    Kumquat, small and bright,
    I’ll be full of luck tonight
    with you, full of light.
