iPhone Haiku Contest

"AMF’s [Ann Marie Fleming's] stickgirl has been busy exploring her brand new iPhone and needs your help in developing her very own free, collaborative poetry application. This application will work like a snow-globe oracle: ask stickgirl a BIG LIFE question, shake the iPhone, letters with float through the air, settling to form a haiku, based on your query. Stickgirl will then interpret the poem, and tell you your fortune, leaving the reader with a pearl of uplifting daily wisdom. In order for this app to be successful we need a lot of poetry. We’re inviting you to fill out the form below and submit your original haikus. We will use your haikus in our iPhone app, and recognize your contribution on our website."

Thanks for that, but you'll find Michael Dylan Welch's haiku game much more authentic and fun:

Haiku Journey PC haiku game!


I believe you can get a free trial download, so try that and see if you don't get addicated. ;-)

all my best,
