short short haiku update

Being the overbearing type A personality that I am, simple to me is never simple. After some polite intervention by a friend, I came to realize that my short short haiku contest description was quite vague, to say the least, being camouflaged by extraneous gobble de gook, and unnecessary teaching and instruction. Please go back and take another look. I have taken out except what I need for the contest, i hope, i hope, i hope. My consideration of your entry will be based on the total feeling I get from both of your poems. btw the poems do not have to relate to each other. Some people do one form very well, others almost always go the other way. But, I will do my best to try to average out what you have. In keeping with the light nature of this contest please do not be offended if on that particular day I do not like your work. Already I have 8 poem (16 actually) half of them are not even haiku. half of the other half have used a "feeling" as one of the sensory perceptions. Then half of the half left did not use proper form by connecting grammatically the two lines of the phrase. That leaves me with one gorgeous most outstanding entry with both poems correctly written. I have not peeked to see who it is. I am tempted, but no, I will not do it.
