It’s that time of year again. When the sun and rain are at odds, the corndogs are flowing freely, and everyone digs out their favorite faded plaid shirt. That’s right, friends, it’s Stampede.
Here at The PPF, we have our own way of celebrating The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth–with poetry. From Friday, July 5 until Sunday, July 14, mosey on up to your favorite web-enabled device to share your #yahoohaiku. You can Tweet it to us (@pplspoetryfest, hashtag #yahoohaiku), post it on our Facebook page, or add it as a comment here. Send’em in, and at the end of the festivities, we’ll hand out some lovely prizes for your troubles.
You can write about the belt buckles, the chuckwagons, or everyone’s favorite–those little donuts. But whatever you do, make sure it’s haiku:
the ground has thundered
horses gallop past the crowd
the chuck heat is on

See you at The Grandstand!
