What wise words written in a simple Haiku Great accompanying and appropriate photo as well.

Examination
of one's inner well being
soul stimulation

only 3 lines but 3 succinct lines it has a Confucious feel about it

A very thorough but concise description of zen meditation. The picture fits well.
It was very deserving of the win.

Congrats.

Keep writing

Your poem meets the syllable and line count requirements. It's more cerebral than emotional. Because of this, it was harder to make a connection to the poem.

Congratu (1/2 of congratulations since it is a tie.) This contest was a most excellent way to examine one's fundamental understanding of haiku and Zen. Your poem does not use the word Zen as one of your syllables for which I applaud you. For, as you may have noted in my review of this contest to write a Zen haiku, I am using the word Zen a lot. You examined, something stimulated, and the word Zen never made it to the contest page. Well done. I think you should have won without a tie because your poem was sans Zen.

Well done. Self reflection is good for the soul. If we are to be better people we must critique and coach ourselves up. That is what I get from this piece . A well written haiku can convey a lot in a few words and that is what you have done. Congratulations and best top you.

This work has reached the exceptional level
Well-deserved awards, author, and reflects what my amateurish brain regards as the perfect Haiku. After numerous attempts at this poetry form, I understand how difficult it can be to select just the 'perfect' words to relay the sentiment. So you have my great admiration in achieving this. I intend becoming one of your fans, if you have no objection Regards, Mary

OoooOOoooOOOoooo..... I LIKE this one! I can see this clearly. Oh! And now I see that it actually won the Zen contest. I can see why. I read a few of the other entries and they had nothing on you! *smile* Congrats!
