Congrats to the winners - great haikus! (Or is haiku one of those words that is the same in its singular and plural forms...)

Haiku developed from humour, wit and the play of words, double meanings and parody. Its an outward expression of the mastery of language. Invoked with several small rules carried from the 15 th c. The rules ( not the defining structure) are often broken for artistic merit but a winning haiku should ( at least satisfy the most basic of these which was to have a 'season' word in the first 5 phonetic units (syllables/ morae).

I think of the two chosen the later is more in keeping with the origins of the haiku. But just like elections sometimes even the two choices are just that choices.

Loved the competition and prizes thought. I typically admire and even love every thing that passes across these pages.. This was a disappointment.

it's a holiday haiku contest, as i said before, lighten up. if you're dissapointed by fun little haikus you're probably taking the whole thing too seriously.

Who gets bent out of shape about haikus? And takes the time to write a long paragraph about them?

Life's too short for that sort of stuff- enjoy the holiday haikus and move on, man. There's plenty more to see.
