Hey there Forge fans,

The colourful Autumn months have inspired the poets for generations, and now its your turn! We want to hear your haikus, inspired by the beautiful months of Fall (or for our Southern Hemisphere players - Spring ;) ). To enter the competition, just submit your Haiku in the replies below - don't worry, no one will be able to see them until the competition is over! The haiku can be on any topic related to the autumn - a spooky ghost poem, an ode to Autumn or whatever takes your fancy. If you live in the southern hemisphere and want to make your haiku about spring, just start your reply with the line "Southern Hemisphere".

What is a haiku?
a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world.
So your poem should have three lines. The first with 5 syllables, the second with 7 syllables, the third with 5 syllables again.
For example:

“The Old Pond” by Matsuo Bashō
An old silent pond (5 syllables)
A frog jumps into the pond— (7 syllables)
Splash! Silence again. (5 syllables)

The winner will win 1000 diamonds, with two runners up winning 500 diamonds each. The Community Management Team will judge the results.

  1. The winner will be decided upon by the Community Management Team
  2. The winners must have an active account on the International English (EN) server to be awarded a prize.
  3. The Haiku format should be followed, in cases of ambiguity, the Community Management Team will judge.
  4. Only entries posted on this thread will be counted.
  5. Any entry made after the close time will be removed.
  6. There is to be only one entry per player, if a player answers twice, only the first answer will be counted.
  7. All forum rules apply.
  8. The Community Management Team is the final arbiter of the rules.
The contest will run from November 7th, 2022 until November 17th, 2022 19:00 pm server time.

Southern Hemisphere

Our time springs forward
We lost a whole hour of sleep
Where did the hour go?

Queen Aethes

(By...Her Majesty Queen Aethes)

Murky winds

Dark wind touched her face
Ruler fear no skeleton
She will seize your place.
Fall brings a Wildfire
sweeping through Uceria.
Great empires are forged.

Authors note. Wildfire is the name of a Guild (#18) on the new world of Uceria (Pronunciation is you-cer-ea-ah)


Stegg's Haiku

Comfortable spring
A bright flower drifting in
enjoying the scene

thanks for the opportunity
