This is pretty exciting: Someone on Twitter (can’t remember who or else I’d give the proper credit) linked to this computer-themed Frightful Haiku Contest, and, given that I love a challenge–and Halloween–I decided to enter.
Of course I didn’t think I’d actually win…not because I doubt my haiku skills, but simply because I don’t typically win contests and–okay, I doubt my haiku skills.
But guess what.
You’re not really guessing, are you? I already gave it away in the title of this post. If you’re guessing just to humor me, I appreciate it, but don’t bother, because I will never know.
I won! You can see the winning entries here. And here’s my grand prize-winning scary computer haiku:
Wind whips through the cloud
Malware-wolves lurk in shadows
Full hard drive tonight
Happy Halloween! With the destruction and devastation from the hurricane surrounding us, it may seem silly to be caring about a silly holiday, but it’s my opinion that celebrating silly things is one of the ways we stay sane when facing hardships in life–or life in general.
