    EDIT: Galustee Won!!!

    So I asked a handful of people to help judge, explained the situation, and ended up with some winners!

    MCNSA by Galustee

    Crawling through a cave
    Unsure of what awaits me
    Only time will tell. . . . . .

    Galustee won with his ever so lovely poem about the wonders of exploration (in fact, it was unanimous across all judges) — complete with an illustration I’ll probably fail miserably at, Galustee wins the legendary sword “Zantetsuken”, an the incredibly rare and collectible “Fern of Tranquility” coupled with a “Pot of Holding”

    There were also TWO runner-up winners: xKYLERxx and Lots_Diamonds (even if Lots did spell it wrong :P) — they receive Looting II enchantment books.

    All three winners also receive a Book and Quill to write down their awesome Haiku.

    I enjoy Haiku.
    So why not make a contest?
    Let’s see what you got!

    Participants have one week to come up with the best MCNSA-related haiku. What is a haiku? A Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five. (see the example above)

    On Friday, August 2nd at 5:00pm EST (Countdown – http://goo.gl/NtmGEU), the entries will be closed. Myself and a team of four others (non-playing people so mods may enter if they wish!!) will judge who we think has the best Haiku. Winner will receive a prize and providing I have the artistic ability, I will do my best to attempt an illustration related to the winning Haiku!

    Extra Rules: Must be posted in this topic. One one entry per person. Must be original idea and poem. Rules subject to change.

    So be creative!
    Let your poetic side out!
    Win this damn contest!

    A lot of thought went into the following words:

    There are no diamonds
    This server has no damned cows
    You guys are ass holes

    Here’s kind of a follow-up haiku on Kyler’s:

    Where is the cow stash?!
    We know it exists, tell us
    Please, I need some steak

    It is our nature
    To not write haikus about
    Nature, as is apt

    Haikus are supposed to be short quips about nature, but whenever they’re taught in school, it’s all about the syllables 😛

    Japanese Haiku
    in the old traditions are
    about nature, true.

    Contemporary
    English Language “haiku” are
    really something else.

    Perhaps it is best
    to enjoy them merely for
    their simple constraints.

    Nature is fine, but
    I enjoy modern haiku,
    not traditional.

    It’s food for your mind.
    Working with constraints is good.
    Mental exercise.
