UDPS Flash Haiku Summer

The Unseen

Nameless, faceless, all-knowing;

Unseen Flash Haiku Challenge for Thursday, 3rd June 2010

This wasn’t my original thought for today’s challenge, but Geoff Munsterman mentioned doing another single-themed “flash” haiku challenge, with the exception that this time no one would see anyone else’s until they were all posted, and I’m an accommodating type of guy, so…

Here are your parameters:

Title your post, “UDPS Flash Haiku Summer.”
Save your haiku post as a draftdo not publish it.
Tonight, at 10:00PM ET (US East Coast Time, e.g. New York time, for those of you in the antipodes), I will publish all the drafts for this challenge in the order they were saved as drafts.

Your theme: THE UNSEEN

This could get interesting. Your challenge begins…NOW!

Rhyme on! Continue reading
