E-Brake: Welcome Fark Artists to your weekly Fartist Friday Contest. This week, write an original Haiku about the view from your window.

A Haiku is described as "a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world. Or, a poem in English written in the form of a haiku."

My own example:

The backyard beckons
Sunflowers sway in the breeze
But it's too damn hot

Fartist Fridays are weekly creativity contests that you can participate in with things you have on hand, since many of us are stuck at home right now. If you have an idea for a future contest theme, please send it along to Farkback. Show off your skills (or lack thereof!) while we practice socially distancing together, and be sure to vote for your favorite entries.

Congratulations to last week's winner, jbtilley!

The contest is submitted on Thursdays with entries open immediately to TotalFarkers (membership has its privileges!) then goes to the Main Page on Friday. The contest closes at the end of the day (midnight Eastern) on Sundays. All times are approximate because we're all drunk.

Vote-enabling Instructables:
On either the full site or mobile, just check the "Enable voting for this entry?" box under your entry before you hit Post.

If you forget to clicky the Votey box, just Report your post using the radioactive button and ask us to enable voting.

Rules:
All votable entries follow the theme requirements.

This week's theme: Write an original Haiku about the view from your window.

Three separate entries maximum are allowed per person.

Prize: Bragging rights and a mention in the Fark NotNewsletter.

All skill levels encouraged and most importantly: We're all in this together so let's create some F'Arts together - Fark Arts, that is.
