Winning Haikus!

Thanks to everyone who entered our Fury of the Phoenix/Silver Phoenix Contest. We had some amazing entries and I didn't envy Cindy her job. But she did come up with our two winning haikus, and here they are!

Grand Prize Winner:

Flame raging beneath,
Burying past emotions,
Waiting for fury. (dagger 16)

Second Prize, but no less grand, winner:

It swept across,
and Nature fell upon us.
Beautiful Fury. (by sarah)

Congratulations Dagger and Sarah! Please email me at helloello@ellenoh.com with your contact information and let me know if you would prefer an Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift card.

Also, Cindy would like to let ALL participants who submitted a haiku be eligible for some Fury swag if you are interested. Just email her at pon.cindy@gmail.com and put "Haiku Swag" in the subject line.

Thanks Cindy for your generosity! And thanks again to everyone who tweeted and blogged and facebooked and talked about it. All of you are wonderful!
