What is a haiku?

A haiku is a Japanese poem with a total of seventeen syllables, broken into three lines (traditionally of five, then seven, then five syllables). Haiku in English don’t always follow the strict syllable count, and they can be endlessly creative, so have fun with it! Read more about haiku on Wikipedia.

    If I were to win, could I pick a journal other than the wine journal?

      Hey Natalie! Thanks for your interest in the contest. Unfortunately we won’t be able to swap out the Passions Wine Journal if you were to win, so perhaps it could become a great gift for someone in your life! Do you already have one of the Wine Journals, or are you just more interested in one of the others?

    I love the idea and I love Moleskin, but please note “haiku” is one of those words that is singular and plural. You can have one haiku or a million haiku, but never “haikus”.

    Moleskine waits for me
    ink, words… my dreams are absorbed
    my soul is revealed
