What are Floors? Floors are, unlike the ground, artefacts everyone uses everyday; yet, not one everyone has intimate experiences with (but certainly one everyone have intimate experiences upon), like computers or bowls. Floors are something everyone is comfortable with but it is also something to push everyone out of their comfort zone.

Question..did you just give us the obscure meaning you meant for the theme to encompass...after the round ended?

The images here seem confused, or maybe it's the construction. Unfortunately, I can make no sense of the middle line and without it, any meaning is incomplete.

I fail to see what is so confusing about the middle line? It even has two meanings

Standing ground..a location in which one stands. A place of solidity in one person's (i.e. the one finding fault within) in which he, many times, has stood. This idea gives the the location a much more personal level in regards to the man..implying that the "standing ground" was of his ownership and his responsibility.

Or

The location had been "standing ground" for times, implying that it has been quite durable and survived for quite some time. Then, with the self-blaming of the man in the third line, it becomes clear that the mold that destroyed the standing ground was his fault (implying he did not take enough care of the place)

In what form does cold darkness take? Is floor 500 high enough to be in the outer atmosphere?

You clearly either didn't watch, or didn't remember that one Doctor Who episode :P

Thanks for the excellent judging, Gantic. I note that my haiku is not only about floors, but also about this new theme, mamihlapinatapai, which is why I found the new theme doubly amusing.

Two unspoken thoughts
A pair of eyes staring back
Asking me to start
