have you noticed that,
some of these aren't five-seven-five,
what is happening?

ya, five seven five
I remember it that way
but five ten five works

per the O P post
three three four or five ten five
many ways are right

How can one put restrictions
Upon all the season has to offer
Rebirth holds no word limit.

Youthful hearts collide
through wisps of laughter and tears.
The vernal season.

Windows wide open;
the smell of fresh plowed earth
A time for rebirth

Children play outside
Rain wipes away winters sins
Cocoons split open

Cool breeze, warm welcome
Winters boxes stowed away
Change is in the air

ocean whitecap calmed
in almond trees, parrots play
frogs scold the heavens

Sadness akin to snow,
Shooed by spring's new morning dew,
Smiles begin to show.

To float into the heavens
like a feather riding the soothing breeze
I am on my own

Windswept mem'ries flights

Loved ones who weep till the dawn

September still mourns ...

Here forever more
darkness close the season for
beauty, cellar door

Spring turns round again
Cold dark cloudy winter days
What betrayal this?

Thank you for teaching me about Haiku. This was my first attempt and I blew it. Instead of three lines I had 4. Therefore I disqualify myself. Thank you ATS members.

So far, the leaders are as follows:

ladyinwaiting: 16 stars

maria_stardust: 14 stars

whaaa: 11 stars

MemoryShock: 11 stars


It seems we have a tie for third place and that just won't do. Please star the haiku you prefer or star any other on these 6 pages. At the end of this week, April 9, the winners, whoever they may be, will be chosen by you, the membership, so please be generous with your stars.

Congratulations to the winners.
I like these uplifting kind of threads.
I love how diverse ATS is.

ETA: Oops!
I thought the contest was through
Guess and comeupwith a new haiku!

No more haiku for this contest.

From now on we must at least hope to break the third place tie.

Please, dear membership. if you haven't starred anything yet, I beg of you to loosen your pursestrings and lavish stars upon these poets.

Things have definitely changed since yesterday. The leaders now are:

ladyinwaiting @ 17 stars

maria_stardust @ 14 stars

whaaa @ 12 stars

Edit to add that the final decision will happen on April 9, so there is still time for others to overtake those who now occupy the top 3 places.
