With 11 days on file, it’s time we introduced a challenge with a little style. To enter to win today’s 25 Days of Tegra device, you’ll need to submit an original haiku (you know, the Japanese poetry that follows a 5-7-5 pattern?). You’ll also need to be logged in, but I figured you guys have figured that part out by now.

The Prize: 

The Fujitsu STYLISTIC M532 is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and features a 10.1 inch display, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera- all the bells and whistles you’ve come to expect from these tablets.

Contest Rules

It’s a holiday miracle! This year we’ve expanded our eligible countries to include the following: US (excluding Puerto Rico and its other territories and possessions), Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Norway, Finland, Czech Republic, Australia, China (excluding Hong Kong and Macau), Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, India (excluding the State of Tamil Nadu), and Brazil. If you’re keeping track, that’s like quadruple the locales we normally ship to, so huzzah!

How to Enter

Not that I’m any good at it, but astute readers might have noticed that I’ve been starting each day of the 25 Days of Tegra with a rhyme. Holidays just feel like the time to rhyme. To enter to win today, you’ll need to write a short poem.

It can be about anything you want, the holidays, the tablet, the internet- just make sure it confines to the traditional practices of haiku (most notably: three lines, with 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables each, respectively). Multiple comments are allowed on this post, but each user will only be counted once. The winner will be chosen at random (as long as the haiku is valid), so don’t bother downvoting each other. To get things rolling, I’ve written a few myself:

A month of prizes
like some new age nerd Santas
Will he visit me?

The weather changes
People opening their hearts
Holiday traffic

Holidays approach
Families start to gather
Please spike the eggnog

I know these are terrible. I already admitted to being terrible at this. Which is why we’re asking you guys to submit some. Anyone got some clever words to get in the holiday spirit?

Winner: boro09

    Look at that beautiful sky
    White clouds showing underneath
    Are the stars hiding?

    The Green grass growing
    Look like it’s time for mowing
    Something i don’t do

    What is that power?
    Only the Niagara Falls
    Surely can’t go up

    Snowing at Christmas
    A child opening presents
    What a happy sight

    OH say can you see
    is a song we all Noel
    Like a jingle bell

    My beautiful car
    It can take me very far
    But i like it here

    See that butterfly
    A caterpillar can’t fly
    He doesn’t have wings

    See the waves ripple
    A sail-boat on the water
    Makes it so cool

    A hot summer day
    A pitcher and a batter
    Oh, what a challenge

    A hot summer day
    A cook-out in the backyard
    Swimming in the pool

    Writing poetry
    That has humour is for me
    That is what I like

    Wish you a very
    happy Christmas and a
    joyous New Year.
    AndroidandMe let me win this One :)
