Juvenal

Con

This debate is focusing on who can produce the more beautiful haiku, as decided by the voters. I do not want to become involved in a trash-talking Haiku battle. One haiku per round.
My first haiku:
Droplet Leaves the Bough
Ripples Spread Upon the Steam
A Beautiful Sound
ccstate4peat

Pro

Feel the gentle breeze
Rushing, Flowing through the trees
The sound is pleasant
Debate Round No. 1
Juvenal

Con

Shaded paths ahead
Golden limbs sway in the breeze
Wander Purposely

Pro

Spring is magical
Cherry Blossoms are blooming
It is, indeed, nice
Debate Round No. 2
Juvenal

Con

The Sun has gone down
Darkness changes the landscape
I think I like it.

I would like to congratulate my opponent on a great contest. Words can be used for creating art instead of argumentation.

I would also like to congratulate my opponent on a great debate.

Beauty is hidden
Often misinterpreted
It's difficult to find

No, there is definetely a sullable requirement (5-7-5).

My guess is you commented on the wrong debate, but also, there is no syllable requirement. Do some research.

[i]slash[/i] should have been [b]slash[/b]

There is definitely a syllable requirement. Because he used the word [i]slash[/i] in symbol form, he should not get any points.

You got PRO and CON mixed up, and there is no syllable requirement.

Went 'Pro':

Pro seemed to be far more descriptive, and gave wonderfully vivid details (Shaded paths, golden limbs, etc.).

Also, Con's last haiku lost form - "It's difficult to find" - 6 syllables (broke the 5-7-5 pattern); I don't want to be picky, but it is a HAIKU contest, and I had to find what I could to come to a decision.

Is this based on three-point votes? Or five-point votes, as sources can't matter? Or maybe even seven-point votes? I'm going to put down five for who I though won. Please tell me if I should do otherwise.
