Entries should be send to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject of "Kigo Entry" or "Free Format" entry respectively.
Sometimes, I enjoy the challenge of twisting the kigo into scifaiku for my personal enjoyment. Blizzard is one of those kigo words which I have no real life experience with and that probably won't change in the near future as I continue to live in my native Southern California.
So, it didn't take much effort to twist this kigo into scifaiku, since the resulting scifaiku was about as real to me as writing about being in a blizzard would be:
third blizzard --
the colony orders parts
for its weather generator
The free format word was more difficult, but by focusing on straight science, I ended up with a science metaphor type of ku:
6000 degrees c
the mottled photosphere
of her anger
I still may write something mainstream with the assigned kigo/free format word in time to enter it, but if not, I hope you enjoyed these.
