The idea is to write a haiku that creates an image or expresses a thought about Las Vegas. It should stand alone. But the trick will be: you must use the last line of the previous haiku as your first line.

It's an ancient contest with no winners and losers, but much face for the most expressive or elegant thought.

For those unfamiliar, haiku is 17 syllables. The first line has 5, second has 7, third has 5.

Here's a start.

Vegas in summer
Pavement shimmers in the heat
Night brings cool relief.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Night brings cold relief.
Water dancing to the beat
At Bellagio
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Night brings cool relief
As stars gleam in desert air
A white orb spins around
