Geary. The word falls
From my lonely, Oni tongue
Like cherry blossoms.

I didn’t have as much time as I hoped to focus on any haikus, but here’s a whimsical one I wrote for the heck of it a few days ago. I hadn’t entered it and this post is not an attempt at a late entry.

I’m posting it here in the hopes it amuses people and because it was born of contemplating this contest.

Bird of the Zero Point Pathogen

The Flapping Signals,
Deep Through Agartha Defiled,
Flappy – The Big Freeze!

Thank you, Goonshine, for hosting!! It’s always such a wonderful pleasure to see sweetlings inspired!

I’m happy to announce the winners for the A Haiku or Two contest!

First let me say thank you to all the writers of these wonderful submissions. It was very difficult to judge, there were so many quality pieces submitted and everyone did a really great job with the prompts. Even if you didn’t win, please still feel proud at what you accomplished, and I hope to see you in a future contest.

Without further ado, the winners are:

  1. Hengist, for The Fate of Bees
  2. Fenrir, for In love hotel’s glow
  3. RazieI, for Summoning my death

For the raffle prizes:

  • Karzamal wins the Emote: Evil Laugh
  • BlackSwordman wins the Party Ghoul

I will be contacting each winner via DM to setup a time to meet them in game and hand over their prizes from LoMS as soon as reasonably possible. The GM dossiers will arrive in the stated character’s delivered Items once Funcom distributes them. In the off-chance that someone doesn’t want or need their prize, I will offer them to the next placed person.

Once again, please give a hearty congratulations and click a :heart: on all the lovely haikus that were submitted!

Thank you so much for this contest.
I really loved the unique aspect of it and with the added limitation of themes too made it all the more interesting.
Congratulations to all the winners!

I had my own personal fave from @WireRat and since it didn’t have a title I have added a small screencap and thought it to be a most perfect Haiku, it’s almost a motto at this point.

Thanks for confirming! I also heard Hengist got his dossier. If anyone sees Karzamal let them know I’m trying to deliver the Emote: Evil Laugh :slight_smile:
