First Semi-Annual Luscious Verde Haiku Contest

While we like buying stuff (and I mean really, really like buying stuff), we also like giving stuff away. Coupled with our natural poetical talents, we thought of the perfect idea to get us through the historically “eh” month of September: the First Semi-Annual Luscious Verde Haiku Contest.

Haiku, if you’re wondering, is an ancient Japanese poem form in three lines. The first line has five syllables, the second has seven, and the third has five. Here’s a wonderful example haiku by lead proofreader Ted:


Example haiku

Five syllables, then seven

And then five again


Not too hard, right? Reply in the comments section with a haiku of your own, and you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a Luscious Verde gift basket full of goodies that we swear aren’t just lying around our work area. One entry per person, etc. We’ll leave you with a haiku composed by estimator extraordinaire Megan:


The cutter scares me

Steel blades slicing up paper

Wish it was roast beef


Good luck!


-- Rob @ L.V.
