Seven poets will have their interpretations of "Wabi-Sabi - Spring & Death" featured in the Tsubasa Report. Each winner will also receive a transfer code for a custom item and furniture!

For everyone asking:
This is not an April Fools joke!
The contest is real. The prizes are real.

Edit:
Yes! This is about writing poetry. Poems are art. We will have visual art contests this year, but this one is about writing.

Edit:
Wabi Sabi means:

Edit:
The word/letter limit is whatever can fit inside a Notebook (buy one in the family store and try to fit the poem in there. The limit is reached when the notebook runs completely out of space.)
(Around 12800 characters including spaces)
But remember: we don't judge by length. It can be as short as a haiku.

Edit:
Also, members of school faculty, members of the Librarian's Adult Role, and those with characters that are teachers/professors that deal with literature, please reach out to me. You qualify as a jury member for this contest. I want 3+ to 5+ people, that judge the poems. Your jury duty will be compensated.

OK ILL KEEP IT SHORT

Roughness abounds in every texture and hue, A reminder that life is imperfect, yet true. Simplicity whispers in every scene, Where clutter recedes, and clarity gleams.

In nature's wild embrace, where asymmetry reigns, Beauty blooms in every twist and turn, in every untamed domain. For symmetry may seek perfection, in lines straight and true, But nature's hand paints a masterpiece, in hues of every hue.

From the rugged mountain peaks, to the valleys lush and green, Asymmetry weaves its magic, in every flowing stream. For nature knows no bounds, no rules to bind its art, It paints with strokes of chaos, etching beauty on every heart.

So let us embrace the asymmetry, the wild and untamed, For in its imperfection, true beauty is proclaimed.​

now if only i could write poetry.
No excuses! Write a haiku!

Express your observations and feelings about nature, seasons, or moments in life.

Here's a simple step-by-step guide.

1. Structure

A traditional haiku consists of three lines.
The first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables, and the third line has 5 syllables again.

This 5-7-5 pattern is crucial.

2. Subject

Haikus often focus on nature, seasons, or fleeting moments in life.

Think about a moment or element in nature that struck you recently. Or a moment in Karakura that stays in your mind.

3. Observation

Reflect on your chosen subject.

What did you see, feel, hear, smell, or taste? Try to capture a specific moment. (or a specific observation or environment)

4. First Line

Begin with a line of 5 syllables.

It might set the scene or introduce your subject. Or tease about the subject.

5. Second Line

This is the heart of your haiku, with 7 syllables. It should add detail or development to the image or idea you introduced in the first line.

6. Third Line

Conclude with another 5 syllables. This line might offer a reflection, a surprising twist, or a deep observation related to the first two lines.

7. Refine

Read your haiku aloud. Does it flow well? Does it capture the essence of what you wanted to express? Does it suck?

Don't be afraid to revise! Sometimes, shifting a word or two can make a big difference (in clarity and impact.)

8. Embrace Imperfection

Your haiku doesn't have to be perfect. The goal is to express your thoughts and feelings!

Example:
Green leaves glisten wet (5 syllables)
After the summer rain pours down (7 syllables)
Earth breathes fresh again (5 syllables)

or

Plaza bustles loud (5 syllables)
He wants to sell alcohol (7 syllables)
They drag him away (5 syllables)
