National Science Week 2010 – Part 4Posted: August 27, 2010
And finally, a little self-indulgence. The Royal Institute of Australia in conjunction with the Friendly Street Poets, ran a poetry competition for Science Week this year. The competition was called Sci-Ku, and entries were to be 3 lines long and in a Haiku style of poetry, although not necessarily conforming to the traditional 17 syllable count. I entered 3 poems, all of them gas chromatography themed. I won a ‘Highly Commended’ for the following poem:
Always elute together
This is separation anxiety
You can read the winning entries, and other commended entries on the RiAus website here. Congratulations to all of the Sci-Ku poets!
