It's not an April Fool's joke. I would've gotten you guys by now if I did.

Whaddup my AGers! Happy Easter!

So this week's theme was the Blooming of Life for the blossoming of spring. Sadly, I live in the midwest. Spring's coming in two weeks.

Aight. So if you didn't place top 5, write me up on my messenger for a comment.

And people have been asking if I can add more than a top 5. But the fact is, I don't have the time. If you didn't place, you didn't place, I'm sorry. And to be honest, if I said everyone who entered was "special", everybody wouldn't try hard as they should. Just sayin. I love you guys, but an acmed has to do what an acmed has to do.

Well, the top 5 of the 16 participants are here!

_____________________________________________________________________

5th Place: murasaki9

Little hands uncurl
a new heartbeat joins the throb
life begins again


Great wording murasaki! I like the scene you picture, like a bird's first flight. It's beautiful, great job!

4th Place: amoghdayal11

Buds turn to blossom
The chirping birds sing to the cradles
A guest arrives


A good twist to the theme. It was a great scene and a wonderful haiku. Keep it up!

3rd Place: DevilishConcoction

Creation unbound
Seeming to only want to give
Joy and happiness


I liked this one. It's simple, but yet quite nice pace. Keep it up, and you could get 1st!

2nd Place: Maverick4

Blemishing the field,
I clutch my breast, and let go
As lifeblood pours out


Lawlz, breast. *chuckles*. Okay, on a mature comment now, this was good. It didn't just tell the story to poured the story's guts out with emotion. GOOD.

1st Place Merit Champion of the World and Domination and Death: Ernie15

Holy Mother Earth
Hums a soft, quaint lullaby
To a virgin soul


Excellent. Just pure excellent. It was a tough choice, but you came out on top. Congrats Ernie! Ask a mod for your merit! NOW.

All binished.

So, it's Spring Break (betches), and I know you hip AGers will probably be out, so this is gonna be one long round. I'm giving you guys 2 weeks to write this. That's April 21st. The round's theme is Sunset to Sunrise, admiring Jesus Christ's rising of the dead on Easter. Good luck, and... Happy Easter!

Why do you even care, as long as it rhymes x] <--which it doesn't, being haiku. I've never heard a haiku that rhymed. x]

Don't tempt me to insult your intelligence, but rhyming and topic are two different issues, and I wasn't even talking about the former.
