Our next challenge is the Haiku challenge! 

latest?cb=20171001211235

This time, the score limit is only 50, but everyone has to make a Haiku for each post.

A Haiku is a three line poem with 17 syllables: 5 on the first line, 7 on the second line, and 5 on the third line.

Here are some examples:

Quote

Rainbow Dash flies high

No clouds will stand in her way

To watch the sunset

 

Quote

Fluttershy sits down

She feels the cool, morning breeze

Hear the leaves rustle

For more examples of Haiku, see here: https://www.creative-writing-now.com/haiku-poems.html

If you are unsure how many syllables a word or phrase has, please use this: https://syllablecounter.net/count

 

A few rules for our challenge:

It must be related to MLP. You may not use the same Haiku twice or copy a Haiku from someone else.

 

Our contestants for this contest are as follows:

1. Applejack

2. Rainbow Dash

3. Pinkie Pie

4. Twilight Sparkle

5. Fluttershy 

6. Rarity

7. Lyra 

8. Starlight Glimmer

9. Trixie

10. Princess Luna
 

Here are the basic rules of the game: 

1. All ten contestants start with zero points (i.e. no ciders drunk). 

2. Make a post in support of the contestant you want to win.  

3. For each post made in support of a contestant, one point will be added to that contestant (i.e. she will drink one cider). To make the game easier to keep track, I recommend counting to 50 for your pony. For example, if your post is the 12th to support Twilight Sparkle, then say something like, "Twilight Sparkle: 12"

4. Rules for posting are as follows:

   a. You may only give a point to one of the ten ponies, listed above. No other ponies may compete in this competition. 

   b. You may post consecutively, as long as your replies don't merge. The time window of merging is 10 minutes, so you may only post once every 10 minutes if no one else posts.

   c. See above for the Haiku challenge. If you ignore the challenge, your post will not count.

5. The first contestant to get 50 points (i.e. drink fifty ciders) wins! :) 

 

Get Ready ... Set ... Chug! :yay:

Trixie is losing
To Twilight's Awesomeness
fourth cider gone!

Unfortunately, this is not a Haiku, as the 2nd and 3rd lines don't have the correct number of syllables.

Twilight is still at 3.

Also, for future reference, try to make each line form a complete thought or phrase, rather than just fragments of a sentence. It would make your Haiku sound more nice. :) 

 

To everyone, it would help to use the point count system to keep track of the total number of points for each pony. For example, if your post is the 8th to support Starlight Glimmer, then say something like, "Starlight Glimmer: 8"

 

Thanks, everypony, and may the Cider Contest march on!

I'll give you this one, since those lyrics, which are three stanzas, also coincidentally meet the definition of a Haiku (and you have cleverly used them). Well done. :)

Hate to do this to you, but the first line has six syllables, and the second line has eight. Sorry.

Trixie is still at 5.
