The Winner, Haiku Monday

Another Monday has come and gone. Now it's Tuesday and the people want to know. If their president is a Crook. Whoops wrong decade. They want to know who won the haiku. Well friends, I'm about to tell you. Firstly I must say I enjoyed each and every one. Also found several quite touching. And several quite humorous. One of the important things about venturing forth is keeping your compassion and more importantly your sense of humor.

Here are the top 3:
CoryJo:Ending quickly a
Life full of grand memories.
See you in heaven
You have had a tough row to hoe. Your resolve and attitude are inspiring.

BlazngScarlet:
Thousands of feet high,
Strapped in jumpsuit. Ready ... Jump!
Exhilarating!
You could be accused of sucking up to the judge. The perhaps you didn't know. But found yours both fun and exhilarating

Foam:
Pursuing those lips....
Those lush, soft, kissable lips.
....Eternally moist

You're the winner. You had me with kissable lips. Your visual was a bonus. Please grab a badge and hang it up. Then you can curse me for messing up your weekend.

Thank you to all the contributors!

Dealing with blogger is kind of like having a root canal.

I'd much rather have a root canal.

Great picks for Top Three, and a big congrats to Foamy for her most pillowy win. Looking forward to the topic.

Thanks for hosting, Karl, and I honestly have no idea what's going on with Blogger. It's something weird every single day.

CoreyJo said...

Congrats Foamy! A most delicious haiku for sure.

Great hosting Karl, and thanks for picking me for the top 3.

I do believe Blogger is going through a mid-life crisis. The photo upload was giving me all sorts of issues last night.
