Thanks to Megan Fitzpatrick at Popular Woodworking Magazine, we have a winner of our Lost Art Press haiku contest.
I had to call upon Megan to judge the entries because all the haikus I liked had to do with “poo.” (And not the honey-loving morbidly obese bear.) So Megan combed through the entries and selected the following as the winner. I couldn’t agree with her choice more.
forgotten in time
I hold her like men before
her sole cries, “Save me!”
The winner is TJ, who will receive the Stanley Type 11 plane that I restored for my latest DVD: “Super-tune a Handplane” from Popular Woodworking Magazine. Megan also selected a runner-up, in case TJ could not fulfill his duties as LAP poet laureate, or is for some reason not snared in a sex scandal.
Here’s the runner up by Mike Agnew.
Whispers, “Come and play with me.”
Cubicle life sucks.
Thanks to everyone who entered our contest.
