Haiku for Mars contest

The Poetry Foundation's current newsletter brings news of an "intergalactic" haiku contest.

Examining the details I was slightly disappointed to discover that the contest does not come within the orbit of  poets in other galaxies.

I have friends in Andromeda.

The contest, it turns out, is a local interplanetary enterprise.

Entry is free and confined to Earthlings.  Closing date: 1st June 2013. 

The winning verses, in standard 5-7-5 haiku format, and the names of the 3 winning poets will be taken to Mars by NASA's Maven spacecraft.

Full rules and other useful information can be found here:
