Green Tuesday Poetry Slam

Move over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s Green Tuesday, the eco-conscious consumer’s day to find, make or simply forego green gifts for the holidays. To celebrate the first-ever Green Tuesday, Mosaic is sponsoring a swag-free haiku contest. Try your hand at this elegant Japanese poetry form. (Bonus points for renewable energy themed-poems). If you win, we’ll do our best to make you famous.

A haiku is 3 lines, with 5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second and 5 in the third. Here’s an example:

Days grow short and cold
Utility bill rising
Should have gone solar

Submission deadline: Friday, November 30. Post your haiku on Mosaic’s Facebook page under the Comments for the Green Tuesday post. Or you can email it to
