Haiku Contest
What Did I...?
What did I do wrong?
What did I do to deserve
This? What did I miss?

Could you also include the search term you used?

I'm pretty sure I just typed in 'fishing' as it garners all the relative results. Do you want an screenshot?

Not necessary, but it would be interesting to see what you had to work with.

I haven't really written a poem in years. Let's see how (bad) this goes.

My only real friend

You've always been there,
and probably always will.
When everyone has forsaken me
you remain there, still.

My most faithful companion.
My greatest friend on Earth.
As one have we remain'd, Google
ever since your birth.

Theme is a different sort of theme. See page 27 and 28.

Seed phrase: "Always Searching For"
(A haiku)

Always Searching

Searching for answers
Something more, something better-
For the thrill of dreams!

Not sure if title randomly changed, or someone's post was eaten.

Twelve days later and the thought still goes unacknowledged. At least until now, anyway.

"Hey guize, I got it! We'll solve the problem of no attention to the poetry and haiku contests by consolidating them into one thread! It'll be great!"

*never gives attention to thread*

It seems the problem still lies with inadequate or, in this case, absent judging. Back in my day, I was just shy of a public hanging over being 3 days past the end of the contest (but exactly when I promised it).
