We Have a Pi-Ku Contest Winner!

Kim Nelson of Kim Nelson Writes is the winner of the random drawing for our Pi-Ku contest yesterday! She is the winner of a framed 4x6 image of her pi-ku on a photograph. Congratulations, Kim! Her poem appears below.

At this time, because of the interest, I would like to give you warning of the Tuesday, June 28, 2011 Tau-Ku Challenge. This will be one day only! And again, a random winner will be drawn. Your poem does not have to be about math. What is tau? Tau is two pi, or approximately 6.28 (which is why June 28 is Tau Day). 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!

And that’s it!

Everyone’s pi-ku were so lovely that I am going to collect them all in one spot and post them as soon as possible. I hope you had fun with this challenge.

Have a great week!
