Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Haiku Club's Lantern Festival Contest! =D (Big Grin)



Winner  First Place goes to light dodoitsu by Weidenlied

Sweet and shining, this paints a charming image of a child reading under the covers in bed.

Lantern Festival (dodoitsu)Smallest light in the darkness
makes hidden fantasies shine
a lone hero's golden blade
obscured by covers.




Winner  Second Place goes to any time now haiku by Formel

Great suspense and anticipation.

Any Time Nowsun-bathed
barren branches' buds
yet to pop




Winner  Third Place goes to fire haiku by theLonliestOne

Eye-popping imagery!  It is so easy to see and feel the movement of the flame.

FireSnapping ribbons twist
with vibrant grace and passion,
shedding sparks like tears.



It was so fun to read all the poems- I am hooked on the judging thing!

Special thanks go to RedDragonfly and saiun for judging the contest, and RedDragonfly and saiun for providing prizes.

Remember to start
warm wind and daylight
after the long dark winter
I hear her hoofbeats
barn doors closed against the chill
she is galloping toward spring
Galloping Wind

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Haiku Club's 2015 Renga Tree!  See the amazing 230 poem collaboration for yourself.  =D


:typerhappy: The Prolific Poster Award goes to ScottMan2th
He submitted an amazing 49 poems to the tree, though I did give him a run for his money this time.  ;)


:floating: The Spirit Award also goes to ScottMan2th
Not only was Scott prolific in the challenge, keeping the obsession rolling, he was also the same when it came to comment/reply output with entries, inspiring others to become more involved as well.


:winner: First Place goes to Snow Angels by jade-pandora
Bittersweet and spot-on imagery.
Snow angels
reminiscing,
the imprints you and I
left behind, fill with snow



:winner: Second Place goes to Hearth Dragons by TwilightPoetess
I'd never thought of the moving smokes as dragons, and it made a mundane thing magical.
Hearth Dragonssmoke settles heavy
on the hearth--
a dance of gray dragons



:winner: Third Place goes to Willow by ScottMan2th
I especially like the imagery of nature, and the inner strength of the tree that can be transferred to almost any situation.
-willow-bent by fate
kissed by storms
still unbroken



Honorable Mentions go to:
:star: Frostbite by RetroZombie
Nature mirrored in the dance of love, with beautiful sensory imagery.
frostbiteby our glowing hearth
a frosted glass moonrise—
I warm your hands


:star: Eons of Ions by saiun
Beautiful vision of the slow passage of glacial ice under the ephemeral aurora borealis.
Renga Tree - Eons of Ions   rivers of ice
slowly flowing to the sea
   beneath dancing lights


:star: 6:30 a.m. by somnomollior
Describing a scene in scents when the subject probably can't smell very well at the moment is artful and gives this poem several levels.
2015 New Years Renga Tree: 6.30 a.m.winter cold
chamomile and lavender
scents the air



Special thanks go to saiun for judging the contest, and moyan, RedDragonfly, saiun, and somethingzenzen for providing prizes.

it was an epic battle to reach the keyboard with a terrifying clawed and fanged black predator blocking the way with his cute fuzzy belly. There was purring, there were tears, but somehow I managed to persevere.
