Sunday at midnight
Twitter haiku deadline falls
Like soft spring blossoms
Copyblogger‘s Twitter Haiku Writing Contest ends Sunday, November 16, 2008 at Midnight Eastern Time.
The passing of a haiku contest deadline always evokes a profound sense of mono no aware, the unique pathos that accompanies contemplation of the transience of all things.
[Sigh. Sip tea. Resume reading.]
[Snort. Gaijin. Sigh.]
