    That is the worst Haiku I have ever heard… it does not make sense??? with the key locked in the….. locked in the what? unlock what door? there is no door on the blackberry. this is why I don’t enter contests they pick the stupidest crap as winners. what about the dog one???

    And I’m not a poor sport I never entered because this is the crap they pick lol

    Hey, they cut the last word on the 2nd line. And out of the ones that made it to top 10 it was the best.

    Good Job Lana

    Gee Thanks A whole bunch brad, me and caspan.

    Brad - I know what a haiku is, they should’ve said haiku format poetry considering almost all of the haikus were not about nature, the question was “where is your blackberry now?”

    Me - very insightful comment

    Caspan - your kind of mean i hope you realize, whether you like it or not, They screenshot the page and cut out the last word, therefore it didn’t make sense, but most people could see a word was missing… Still you don’t have to be so harsh about it, and if you wanna change the contests then suggest one and work on it with the company.

    shimmering surface
    light dances, buttons reflect
    dropped in a puddle

    Lana - don’t think I was singling you out. A lot of folks tried to make their haiku into a limerick.
