1st place: Patric, [Half-Mad Poet] - "Ebon Sky"

"Strewn across the ebon sky,
Gems of glittergold,
A shine in beauty, a shine in light,
Life's essence they hold.

"The silver sphere hangs above,
Azure waters still,
Amulet of love and power,
Divine its holy will.

"Ebon thread weaves it all,
Together, yet apart,
In awe we mortals stare
At nature's loving art."

2nd place: Nathan, [Leftshoulder] - "Crescent on the Ripple"

2006-06-07 [Linderel]: Haiku can be very eloquent indeed, if one can use that format to its full potential.

2006-06-08 [Elysian]: I agree. But some people like writing a single line of "poetry" that conveys nothing more than a random assortment of words.
