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
