Default [AAOC] Which Haiku is better?

Do not vote for yourself. If you do, your vote will not be counted unless you state in a post or PM to me that you meant to vote for someone else.

This poll is a representation of PE2K’s opinion on art of a certain medium. This poll is an AAOC poll, which means that it signifies that a competition was held, which means that it is now going to advance to the voting stage. All of PE2K may vote for their favorite one, however they deem appropriate. Just remember that this is not a popularity contest, so please do not vote for your best friend, a moderator, etcetera, just because they are so. Thank you.

This poll’s medium is poetry. The theme is animal haiku. Haiku is a traditional Japanese that has a specific number of symbols on each line, most commonly being the 5-7-5 system, and more often than not says something about nature or life. We have nine competitors for this competition. Please pick your favorite one. If you competed, please do not vote for yourself! It is imperative that this rule be carried out.

Good luck to all who have submitted! Here are the entries.

Look at that lion
It looks extremely hungry
It needs a sandwich.
~Lunar Lime

The wolf lifts its head,
breathing in the crisp night air,
A howl to the hunt.
~Dr. House

I saw a rhino
that started urinating.
Another drank it.
~Hoshika

I shot a chicken
It died extremely quickly
Its corpse was eaten
~Lusankya

The graceful dolphin,
How I hoped to be with it.
Thus its elegance.
~A Requiem of Verities

Giraffes on parade.
They prance about the forest
Graceful, yet lanky.
~Jacob

Through the eyes of pride,
Follow as I strike heavens,
Fierce as a tiger.
~Lunar Latias

Crows hide in shadows.
Making our senses weaker.
Crows crash our bearings.
~Onii-San

The Turtle is Slow
As it Strides Across the Sand
When It Disappears.
~jellotine

Mixing comedy with strict poetry, like haikus, is occassionally difficult. I like how improvisational Hoshika was, so I voted for her.

I vote for Lunar Latias's haiku because man oh man, it is fierce. It also gives me the emotion that I am or that some of us are, like a person from another place and how he'd feel if he'd read this so it was the best haiku in my opinion. Good luck with all the other people's haikus getting voted for.

Hoshi's made me lol.

However, I feel like Lunar Lime deserves my vote. That last line is instant win.

Hmm...It was really difficult. Had to go with Lunar Lime, though. Gemma was right behind, though.

Haikus can emit emotion. Hoshi's made me laugh. That's good enough. *votes for Hoshika*
