Hai-Kuul – June 06, 2005 – Part 2 – Contest Winner & More!

The Hai-Kuul Contest is Done!

That’s right. The 25th entry was received this morning. The runner up was VisitingSweethonesty for submitting the request that lead to the 250th haiku. She will win a 4×6 print of the morning scene.

The Winner

The winner receives an 8×10 glossy print of the morning scene. And here is her request…

That’s Enough (Requested by Drea)
You’ve filled my soup bowl
For a second time. But I
Am not that hungry

Nicely done, Drea!

I will need both of your mailing addresses, so just e-mail me and we can arrange to get your prints to you!

Congrats go out to both of the winners. Stay tuned, as I will have a 500th haiku contest in what appears to be a short time indeed!

Hai-Kuul Queen (Requested by Drea)
The battle is on
Which gal will request the most?
My brain is jello

Blondisma (Requested by Drea)
A rare condition
Of implied stupidity
It is not true, though

Bamaram (Requested by Drea)
Is this word from Hook?
Or could it possibly be
Some Persian music?

Heave Away (Requested by Drea)
The drinks went down fast
I’m running to the bathroom
I hope I make it

Mark My Words (Requested by Drea)
You’ve lost count of how
Many times you have heard this.
The mantra of moms

I Will Win (Requested by Drea)
A strong and unyelding soul
It’s all in the mind

Pyromaniac (Requested by Drea)
Lighting matches rocks
I could stare at a campfire
And I’d lose myself

Slinky (Requested by Drea)
What walks down the stairs
And makes a slinkety sound?
A slinky, I bet!

Toast To Jorge (Requested by Drea)
Let us raise a glass
To…er…me…and how much I
Er…totally rock!

Twenties (Requested by Drea)
The wonderful age
Between teenhood and mid-life
Where youth is enjoyed

Enough (Requested by Drea)
The title of this
Is very similar to
A recent title

Toe Stubbage (Requested by Drea)
I hate the corners
I think that furniture should
Float high off the ground

Thirteen is Unlucky (Requested by Drea)
Irrational fear
Why fear a number?

The Columbian Navy (Requested by Ian)
Don’t mess with these guys
They have very large cannons
That fire sacks of coke

You should read Ian’s blog for the full story of this next one…

Poppin’ Wheelies (Requested by Ian)
Some handicapped folks
Can do the wickedest things
With their rolling chairs

Shirtless Santa (Requested by Ian)
This Santa is cut
He preaches about fitness
So many pushups!

Rat Man (Requested by Ian)
Nathan Phillip’s Square
There is a man with his rats
They’re his family

Snarky is As Snarky Does (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Don’t treat me poorly
Your attitude will just be
Reflected right back

Monday Morning (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
I hate waking up
And having to face the day
When it’s Monday morn

Smooth Teeth (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
It’s like hairy teeth
But this time the sugar makes
Your teeth feel slimy

Where’s My Ten Foot Pole When I Need it? (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
I SO hate that guy
He is very disgusting
Where is that damned pole?

Waiting For the Rain… (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
The ground is quite dry
The people are all so parched
They look to the sky

French Manicure (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
A way to pamper
And it’s different than a
Spanish manicure

I’m With Stupid -> (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Check out my buddy
He thinks that popsicles are
Sugary weapons

In that line of thought…

You Deserve a Popsicle (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Your criminal acts
Will earn you a proper death
With this popsickle

Beasties (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
You will see them out
In the wild. Running free and
Pooing everywhere

Beautiful Eyes (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Nothing is as sweet
As staring into a pair
Of beautiful eyes

Qui Moi? (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
Whether in English
Or even in the French tongue
Trouble will find you

Born On Friday the Thirteenth (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
People say my luck
Is of the worst kind due to
The day I was born

SpellCheckMate (Requested by TheresaWarriorPrincess)
You have backed yourself
Into a literary
Corner. Surrender!

  1. You do rock, Jorge. Well done. I trust you had a lovely weekend. I spent the weekend being convinced to move to Kingston. It’s funny that people think their small opinions will make me pack up and move another several hundred kilometres…ah well, better to do it for their reasons than for none at all, which is my usual m.o. Anyway, to anyone still entering the contest: the prize is a worthy one indeed. It’s an honour to have a small piece of you in my home, Jorge. Thanks.

  2. To Jorge! And his er… rockiness! The popsicle one made me laugh out loud!

  4. Jorge … To you…er…..and how much you Er…totally rock! 🙂 Awesome as usual! I’d like to echo St-Martini-of-the-Vodka! It’s an honour to have your beautiful photography surrounding me at work and at home!

  5. I am always impressed with your inventiveness Jorge, but you have outdone yourself this time! I wish I could read Tolstoy in the original, but I think that l am a bit too old!

  6. You’ve reached a new height previously unheard of in the haiku world. Perhaps too big for the blogosphere? I like the Colombian Navy one, thanks for that. Cheers ~ian

  11. Yup… That’s right folks… I am the queen o’ hai-kuuls for the moment although I’m sure that Theresa was just the barest of steps away from stealing my crown. Thanks so much Jorge; as per usual you’ve managed to rock my and the rest of the blog world’s Casbah. Now when does the next contest start? Should I put the pressure on you momentarily or wait until you’ve cracked your knuckles a few times first? Oh and I’ll be e-mailing you my addy shortly…:) Hugs, Drea p.s How’d your boss take the pink skirt?
