No Mo' Chimney!

1- a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world.
2- a poem in English written in the form of a haiku.

I admit the judging was strictly subjective.
And there were some gems among the poems submitted in my Hawaii-style Christmas haiku contest on Facebook.
I was going to give away one leather luggage tag but then realized I had two. 

So two winners! Drum roll, please.........
Winner number 1-- Baron Sekiya

A dark Winter night
Santa glides onto the roof
Aye, no mo’ chimney!

Why? Because it just made me laugh.

Winner number 2-- David Coleman

With delicate breath
Silence sweeps the Koolaus
Hawaiian winter

Why? Because of the crystal imagery of his prose and this beautiful photo he submitted.

Congratulations, Baron and David. Your leather luggage tags are in the mail.
