After much internal debate and consultation with world-reknowned haiku experts, I have chosen the winner of Shibata Jun's CD Single Gekkou Yoku.
And, the winner is (drumroll please) ...
Mush from Goblinbox with this stunning entry:
You like weird music
but you? are still cute.
Judge's comments: I liked it because it used a REALLY big word and, well, in the words of someone famous, "Flattery gets you everywhere."
Mush, send my your mailing address, and I'll get the CD right out to you (once I find it ... I think it's in my coat closet).
BUT, WAIT, there's more.
A very special consolation prize goes to (another drumroll please) ...
Ms. Martini, who wowed the judges with this entry:
Snows melt, spring arrives
Patience, striped scarf jealousy
Very low, my head hangs
Judge's comments: I liked the imagery ... and I hope your head won't be hanging too low anymore because your prize is:
A handknit scarf by VUBOQ! Ms. Martini, please email and we can discuss colors, style and material.
