DAPRO89's haiku will be proudly archived in the About of HaikuContestWinners

No more submissions will be accepted, unless I am otherwise mistaken.

Typically, the round doesn't close until after 11:59pm of the due date, but oh well. I doubt many more users would've participated in the next few hours.

Run, run, go get your merit!!

Those were cancelled months ago. Hence, drumming up support has been difficult.

Im sorry for the 4 postings, but i want this contest results to be NULLIFIED, CANCELED! 

the round doesn't close until after 11:59pm of the due date

This means that if the voting is done Before 11:59, its INVALID! It should be REVOKED!

The rules have been broken, and something like that should not happen!

Original Rule:

3) It must be submitted before the deadline

Well the deadline is 12th. This means ALL DAY OF 12TH. And results on 13th, which clearly is not done. If everyone stop following rules what would have happened? Fake votes for winners, and Chaos, Chaos everywhere!

I had time but you guys ended too early....

You had more than enough time. Most of the submissions were in on the first day, nearly 2 weeks ago.

Fake votes for winners

How do you think this works? There are no votes. This isn't a democracy.

sucks though 'cause I was planning on submitting one =/

How long were you planning this? You had 12.7 days.

But fine.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
I'll allow submissions for the old round to continue until midnight, as originally intended. Just be sure to announce which contest you're entering.

Why wasn't I told?

Chaos? Yep, it seems that way, doesn't it? No one can blame me for what I don't know. Why didn't anyone say that due November 12th meant due November 12th until midnight on November 12th? Ermagerhd!! This is driving me nuts!

Those were cancelled months ago. Hence, drumming up support has been difficult.

Oh, and no wonder there's not much participation! When was this cancelled? And why?

I'm wondering, is this a lost case or not?

Note: If you really want to get a haiku in for the round that supposedly ended, you'd better do it now. Midnight will be here soon. I am not happy about this.

Well worded, impeccable punctuation and grammar. I like how 'frail light' kind of runs together like smooth music. 'End' and 'journey' work well together, the assonance is both symbolically and physically meaningful. Great work! Run, run, go get your merit!!

Thank you murasaki9, the queen of haikus :)
And i have to thank EmperorPalpatine as he told me the third line was sloppy. And i rewrote it and won! Thanks Palpatine :) Also, thanks for adding me to the winners! :D
