Haiku Contest – Anyone can PLay!

December 8, 2009

Do you haiku?  Love film noir?  (If you don’t know what it is, Netflix “The Maltese Falcon,” one of the greatest movies of this genre.)

Now write three lines in a 5-7-5 syllable pattern.  Can you work in references to “The Maltese Falcon,” Raymond Chandler, an author of other great stories in this genre, gumshoes or dames?

Want to play?  Send your haiku to jburrell@bayareanewsgroup.com by noon (California time) Monday, Dec. 28.

Winners get published in the Contra Costa Times newspaper or in their online edition.

(Another credit is always good for the resume or college application!)
