Happy Tau Day! Poetry Contest Begins Today!

En Syu Ritsu (The Circle Ratio)

The First Annual Tau-Ku Challenge

Today, June 28, is Tau Day. What’s a tau? Read here or click the caption to the image above to learn more. The value of tau is twice the value of pi, or 6.28. The significance of this for One Single Impression is a poetry contest! Because my life is out of control with a new kitten (don’t get one unless you can supervise it every moment of the day and night), this will not be a one day contest. It will run until Saturday at midnight. I will announce the randomly drawn winner on Tuesday, July 5. I can’t announce it earlier because of the Fourth of July holiday that I need to photograph.

So anyhow, here are the rules of the contest:

  • The topic is your choice.
  • The format is:
    • 1st line: 6 syllables
    • 2nd line: 2 syllables
    • 3rd line: 8 syllables
  • Use the inlinkz so that I can have inlinkz choose a random winner.
  • Sorry — only one entry per person!
  • The prize will be your poem and my photography combined into a beautiful display.

And that’s it! Good luck to you all. May the Random Number gods be with you.

I thank Jim for hauling me back into reality here so that I could get the inlinkz up. Late. But it’s up Thank you, Jim! You saved me!
