A few weeks ago I issued a screenshot challenge for folks to send in a haiku poem in addition to their picture. A select few of you did, starting with this striking pose from Final Fantasy XIV by reader Wolfyseyes:
Facing this challenge
One thought repeats in my mind:
Please, please, please don't suck
With party bag of Wassail
Free loot for newbies
~ Reader Tyler in The Secret World
Alone with this black am I
This final frontier
~ Reader Balsbigbrother in Elite: Dangerous (who goes on to explain, "For the more scientific folks this is HR 6948 1, a Class Y brown dwarf. Anyhow, I have to try and find my way back to my home system, which is still another 180 light years or so away. My total round trip distance for this particular excursion will finish up being about 800 LY).
Space, here are my voyages
Live long and prosper
~ Reader Roger in Star Trek Online
