Haiku contest

Post by Lúthien » Wed Aug 28, 2013 1:44 am

I've won two Honourable Mentions on the Omentielva Lempea Elvish Haiku Contest !

- - - - - - - - - - - - -

Nu elin luin
Laiss i mrethil thiliar
Uial dolog!

Under the blue stars
Beechen leaves are glistening.
Trusty twilight!

- - - - - - - - - - - - -

Or chaw amon
i chwest laich matha thîr nîn.
Udulen — na vedui.

On the hilltop
the sweet breeze touches my face
I have returned — at last.


They asked the submissions to not be based on the Legendarium. Mine were based on imaginal impressions / meditation experiences, so I was in doubt for a bit.

Coming here and reading these again has renewed the happiness I felt when I first read them, Melleth. :)

AS with all Haiku, the imagery is both simple and straightforward, and yet these summon a very clear and vast visual of what you've described.

Very beautiful work, and congratulations of the honorable mentions. :D
