KCCC Giveaway!

Joane, a CurlyNikki.com reader, is giving away a jar of KCCC to one lucky curly!

Whenever readers graciously reach out to sponsor a giveaway, I ask the following-- what question do you want me to ask the readers? or, what prompt should I present them with?

Well, Miss Joane's creative self came back with this:

Hmmm... how about a Haiku about their transition/natural growth experience? I really love poetry and I would love to see a dope one!

A Haiku challenge it is! But first, a 3rd grade refresher course:

Haiku is a poetic form and a type of poetry from the Japanese culture. The most common form for Haiku is three short lines. The first line usually contains five (5) syllables, the second line seven (7) syllables, and the third line contains five (5) syllables. Haiku doesn't rhyme. A Haiku must "paint" a mental image in the reader's mind. This is the challenge of Haiku - to put the poem's meaning and imagery in the reader's mind in ONLY 17 syllables over just three (3) lines of poetry! -- Reference

An example:

A Rainbow
Donna Brock

Curving up, then down.

Meeting blue sky and green earth

Melding sun and rain.

The author of the best Haiku (chosen by Joane) will receive the free jar of KCCC, and bragging rights of course... :D This giveaway will end July 8 at 5pm.

Good luck chicas!
