Miracle in the Press Herald newsroom. I’ve just been handed TWO TICKETS to tonight’s sold-out John Hiatt & Lyle Lovett show at Merrill Auditorium in Portland. And guess what?
I’m GIVING THEM AWAY!!!!
Time is of the essence so let’s get right to it.
WRITE A HAIKU about your love for either of both of these gents.
(and in case you need a refresher, a haiku is a three line poem. Line 1 = five syllables, line 2 = seven syllables, line 3= five syllables
Here’s an example:
What a great contest!
Lyle Lovett rocks my world
Haitt’s also cool
Here’s what you need to do:
Post your haiku in the comment section of this blog post by 3 p.m. today! Winner will be selected and notified by 4 p.m.
And, because I’m awesome and because the Press Herald is so close to Merrill, I will stick the tix in an envelope and drop them off at the box office for you!
Ready? Set? Haiku! You can do this!
AND WE HAVE A WINNER!!! Congrats to Sonya Durney who wrote this:
She was a waitress
words from a Lyle Lovett song
’bout a girl who shares my name
