Thank you to all the excellent haiku entries… but as you all knew, there could be only one winner!  

Congratulations to ramenbow.  I am a sucker for foreign languages, and ramenbow just so happened to write a haiku IN JAPANESE.  

Here are all the versions of the haiku:





kuromushi o yumi
hana wa nise


Wilted cry fading
The black beetle bows its head
The flowers are fake!


Enjoy your prize, ramenbow: bragging rights, and a video of me attempting the proper Japanese inflection……. with a lightsaber.
