    Heart caged in metal
    But the soul wanders freely
    A ghost in the shell

    I think most of these poems are not valid, never will, because Haiku contains not just 17 syllables, but - and here sorry for my bad english, I'm hungarian - there are a unit in these syllables, we call them "mora" in Hungary, so Haiku contains 5-7-5 mora,not syllable. And 1 syllable not always equal as 1 mora. You need to know the lenght of the syllable. For example we have a type called dactilus (– ∪ ∪) which is long-short-short = 4 mora. For example a word from my language: életem (means "my life") is dactilus É-LE-TEM long-short-short. And it is 3 syllables but NOT 3 moras, because of the long one :) It's 4 :-D So in hungarian it's almost impossible to write a good haiku.

    Ok, I don't know how are syllable lenght in english but I think these poems just only wannabe-haikus :)) BUT it's not a problem, I love them all what you wrote and it is a really fun contest and I love to be part of this community :) Thanks!

    "Roses are red
    Blood on my hands
    Scream in my head

    What did we done
    For this did we born?
    We need to fight back

    Don't wait for rest
    Keep going till the end
    The enemy is around

    WE can't go back down
    We will fight with honor
    We will become stronger

    Don't look behind where you go
    Remember you are on your own
    Protect what you love

    Stand up and fight
    Take cover it will blow
    Shoot and Reload ! "


    Hehe i hope you guys are going to like this Haiku :D Good luck all

    The silent landing
    of the silk butterfly
    celebrates the morning

    The afternoon dissolves
    in the shout of macaws

    As soon as I met you
    it was love at first sight
    Ghost in the Shell
