Share Your Love for Pumpkin Spice Latte with a Haiku

Falling leaves, crisp air
Tall Pumpkin Spice Latte please
A cozy fall day!

There is a lot of love for the Starbucks fall favorite that is Pumpkin Spice Latte.  We would like to share in the love fest for this beverage over the next three weeks on My Starbucks Idea.  Beginning today and the next two Mondays, we want to hear from you and have some fun.  This week, we want to hear your Pumpkin Spice haikus.  We’ll reward our four favorites each with a $25 Starbucks Card.

What is a haiku?  In Japanese the word “haiku” means playful verse.  It is a non-rhymed poem that has a total of 17 sounds or syllables in three lines.  The first line is five syllables; the second line has seven syllables and the last line five again.  So the first criterion is it needs to meet the haiku syllable guidelines.  The next criterion is it needs to be about Pumpkin Spice.  And lastly you need to share your haikus today by 5 pm Pacific Time here on MSI.  For complete contest rules, click here
