I had picked up a nice Husky tool belt combo at the big orange box store last year. It actually came with two great detecting pouches and two belts. This thing is rugged and will last for years so there is no sense in me keeping both. It has never been used. You can use the pouch with the Velcro belt it comes with or just use your own belt. It has all kinds of pockets and attachments.

As they used to say on Monty Python..."And now for something completely different ....", I will mail this belt and pouch to whoever submits the best Haiku :cheesysmile:. If you recall from your high school freshmen English, a haiku is a poem with 3 lines. First line has 5 syllables, second line has 7 syllables and the third line has 5 syllables. Example below from some ancient Japanese poet.

An old silent pond...
A frog jumps into the pond,
splash! Silence again.

Of course, your Haiku has to be about metal detecting :yes:. I will ask my daughter to be the judge (she’s an English major/Special Ed teacher) and she’ll select the winner. I blame this idea on an old samurai movie I watched a couple weeks ago.
Don’t be shy, submit as many haikus as you want. Let's see some Metal Detecting Haiku Madness :lol:

That's great Don and thanks for getting this started. I'll throw one in too.

Hike to cellar hole,
What great treasure did I find?
Just a bleeping tick !

12-15-2013, 08:56 PM
Search and analyze.
What mystery waits below.
History revealed.


12-15-2013, 09:08 PM
I'll give it a shot :shocked04: :lol:

over the mountains
lies the prize oh so golden
alas but a dream

Hey, This is kind of fun.

In hopes there might be treasure revealed

These are great ! Even if you don't have the need for a new finds pouch, go ahead a join in and submit a haiku. I'll contact the winner before I announce it on the forum and if you don't need the pouch I will just go to the runner ups. I'm about as left brained as you can get. So if I can come up with a haiku anyone can.

12-16-2013, 11:16 PM
Great contest!!! :thumbsup02:

I am not entering the contest but here is my haiku:

Pulltabs are nasty
Some pulltabs even have worms! :barf:
Where are all the rings?! :mad:

Last chance to get a haiku in and win the tool belt. My daughter (English teacher) is coming over for a visit tomorrow and she will pick a winner. Lots of great entries so far. If you haven't participated in haiku madness yet, now's your chance.

Here's another for you cellar hole hunters:

Nature rules the night
Cold white blanket on the ground
Cellar ghosts will sleep

It is four AM
Going to my honey hole
Don't wait up for me

Searching for treasures
Ox shoes and stinkin' Lincolns
Crying in my car

The dirt covers it
Ding! A hero picks it up
It's coin of the month

...this one is for the poets...it has onomatopoeia, alliteration, parallel construction, and anaphora...
Beep beep in the woods
Hidden treasures, honey hole
Beep beep in the field

....from my wife....
Mud on my clean floor
Rusty metal everywhere
Will you please clean up?

01-05-2014, 09:04 AM
:lol: Love that last one Drew! My husband can relate... I think all of our spouses can.

OK, I printed out the haikus, showed them to my daughter the English teacher, and the winner of this year's American Detectorists Haiku Madness is ................

Ronandari ! :congrats:His winning Haiku was:

Detector screaming.
Excitement, my heart pounding.
Aluminum can.

Tony Two-Cent came in second with:

at the vast old park
a deep gold coin in the soil
someday I will find

Digger Don came in third with:

Wow, very cool finds.
don't find those in Illinois
Well, at least I don't

Mrs. OxShoeDrew gets an honorable mention from me for her brilliant impersonation of my wife with:

Mud on my clean floor
Rusty metal everywhere
Will you please clean up?

My daughter said she was surprised at the quality of the haikus. I am not quite sure what she meant by that, but there were a lot of good ones. Congrats to Ronandari. We can all relate to your haiku. Just send me a PM with your address and I'll get that Husky tool belt in the mail to you. Thanks to everyone that participated. :thumbsup01:


01-06-2014, 09:16 PM
Thanks Jeff to you and your daughter. That was one of the most creative contests ever, I was counting syllables for days and had a great time. I'll put that pouch to good use since my current pouch doesn't hold enough stuff.

P.S. My wife really connected with Mrs Oxshoe on this

A year late IP, but your haiku would have at least cracked the top 3 based just on its damaging impact to the psyche. :lol:
