' Coho Wines - Your Haikus

Your Haikus

A haiku is a non-rhymed verse genre. There are 5 syllables in the first sentence, 7 in the second and 5 again in the last sentence. Should you be inspired to write an ecologically minded haiku or perhaps one inspired by salmon or wine we’d love to post them on the website (actually anything that brings a smile to our face would be great). Please send them to info@cohowines.com and put haiku in the subject line. Be sure to include your full name and hometown so we can give you proper credit. With your permission your haiku will be published here.
