I'm sorry I guess I didn't make myself very clear.  My poem that I entered in the contest was on the 1st page of this thread.  Its page 119 in the book.  The grand prize winner isn't even on the 1st page, its in alphabetical order by last name of the person who submitted the entry.
5-7-5-7-5-7-5 is not a traditional haiku.  Actually, I don't know what that would be considered.  You could make a few haiku with each haiku a stanza of its own.
A haiku is 5-7-5.  No exceptions.

There are similar forms of poetry, but haiku is 5-7-5. The one you described seems close to Choka.

I do NOT claim this.  My brother thought it would be funny to post that while on my profile.

A single glimpse of heaven,
Seen shining through a veil,
A single glimpse of what we missed;
We doomed ourselves to hell.

A single tear rests upon his lips,
His companion gone, his heart wounded
Not from the crash but from his pain,
Internal, eternal.
A section severed that cannot be replaced.
To kiss those lips, dewy from tears
To erase his pain and help him look to tomorrow,
A wish true of heart, not to be fulfilled.

is he a hacker? or did you leave your pc unsecured while you was online on ag?

there are programs that can protect this. if you leave your pc and the screen saver is on nobody can use your pc because they need a password.
