2... Here is an original example Haiku Poem written by me, @moonleesteem

Bald Head

He still had his smile
Although he was losing his
Hairs... to find wisdom

One Last Puff

Smoking in his bed
His tired eyes gave away
Dreams in bed ablaze...

Welcome @hungry-nomad,
Thanks... Good Luck 🍀



I have dreams in red
The demon sleeps on my bed
Life dies within me

Welcome @camporr,
Thanks... Good Luck 👍

¡Hey, esta es mi entrada! Y va:

Tu voz es mi voz
Mis huesos son los tuyos
Sí, somos vida.

Hidden in the Tree!

Dry leaves palpitate
hiding forbidden stories ...
sacred memories

Welcome @bailatelavida,
Thanks... Good Luck 👍

Bonjour and thank you!

I am very happy to see

That you like HAÏKUs!

Anyway, I don't know what all the resteeming and stuff means, if you would be so kind as to assist me I would love to participate.

Thank you, [email protected]

Here is a fun Haïku...I have over two hundred of them. Enjoy

Ok, I am pretty sure I resteemed and upvoted correctly, thanks for your patience. I am really on steemit just as a place to keep my 200 plus Haïkus... I know there is much more to this, but slowly slowly.


Welcome @zenjoy,
Thanks... Good Luck 👍

Painful magic tricks

Welcome and Hi @lyxng,
Thanks... Good Luck 🍀

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #39. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest List I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

Thanks mate 🤓

You know it's always my pleasure.

Outside my window
A neglected tractor rusts
Weeds grow through flat tires

I hear your thoughts - don't jump to conclusions ;)

Welcome @operahoser,
Thanks... Good Luck 👍
