Hey Hahiha,
you're format is 5-6-5 it must be 5-7-5.

Smaugs desolation,
It is free from fire's bane;
The Dread Worm is dead.

you're Haiku does not even talk about the topic Retoration

Urgh.

1) Fire can be counted as 1 or 2 syllables.
2) It IS about Restoration. Have you read the book?
3) It isn't COPIED from the book, but based on the book.

Drowning mass of scars.
Swim in tears of sins best lost.
Cleansing bath of pain.

In the light I stand
Filled deep with grief and sorrow
Cleansing my old wounds

IMPORTANT UPDATE THINGY!!!
nichodemus and pangtongshu are the only participants who have expressed interest in judging the contest. Since nicho will be starting army service soon, the next round is his (maybe the round after that, too), and we'll see from there. pang will likely be a regular on the lineup. So nicho, when murasaki9 posts this round's results, give the new theme and due date, and have a mod change the title.
