500 Oodles Mega Game - Oodles Haiku 6/14 (ended, 10 winners)
The Oodles Team suggested a neat game idea. Let's do Oodle haikus! A haiku generally consists of a three-line stanza that has a total of 17 syllables, written in the following pattern:
Shine golden Oodle
Your glow reflects in my eyes
Love to play for you
Breakdown of the syllables
Line 1 Shine gol/den Oo/dle - 5 syllables:
Line 2 Your glow re/flects in my eyes - 7 syllables:
Line 3 Love to play for you - 5 syllables:
The classic haiku theme is nature and many traditional Japanese haiku reflect that with descriptive seasonal words or images. I understand there's more to this wonderful art but for our purposes, we'll keep it simple and just follow the 5/7/5 syllable pattern. If you need a little help, check this site out. Time for some creative fun!
Rules: You have until 6pm ET on Wed 6/15 to post. We'll select our favorite top 10 haiku's to win 500 Oodles each. Please post only once. Do not comment on other posts until after winners are announced. Obey forum rules.
If you're on Twitter, be sure to retweet game announcements for a chance at 50-100 Oodles!

(To be read out loud, over-dramatically)
Oh, great G.S.N....
I'll play until my brain hurts
For one more Oodle!
p.s. Don't you mean 6/14 for the date posted above (rather than 5/14? Same for the date we have to post until... you wrote 5/15 when you mean 6/15) here's another haiku for the error:
The Haiku thread is started
She forgot it's June!
(LOL!! Angel note) :P

GREAT DAY FOR HOCKEY! PENGUINS!!
flies not nearly so high as
when I win oodles
I promise myself
I will love people anyway
With the best that I have
What I thought was an ole dead tree
Then, I'm filled with such Joy and Glee
As now I see, a Luscious Oodle-Leaf Tree
I ache to make the top ten
I'll play just once more...
Edit: Oops... just one haiku per person, eh? Fixed.
"Oh how I do covet thee..."
"Do not flee from me..."
Two great winds collide
They give birth to a funnel
Mother is angry
(This was fun I think I'll write more This one is about a tornado. I hope you like it
Whirlwind shift from game to game
to the golden oodle
i must ever press forward...
the golden oodles
i'll win on tomorrow!
Winning Oodles is
my daily goal, so let me
win now, G.S.N.!
Winning, bidding, and playing
For great currency.
