CONTEST WINNER: Gates’ Palace Of Mirrors

Got lots of great submissions (thank you!!) to win a vinyl copy of Palace Of Mirrors by Gates, but only one hit it out of the park. Revel in Bronson Wistuk’s haiku winning prowess.

 

Tundra caving in
No fire, no light, smoke billows
Windows kept open

 

There was another that definitely deserves runner-up status, which is Christian Molenaar’s that follows the 5-7-5 pattern in both English and Japanese, which I kind of just have to take his word on, but whatever, it’s also just a fucking great haiku.

Japanese:
最終しぐれ (Saishū shigure)
冬の雨, 不老 (Fuyu no ame, furō)
バニー土産 (Bunny miyage)

English:
The last cold shower
The rain in winter, ageless
A gift from Bunny
