    Excellent!

    I'll throw in one more:

    The thrill is the search.
    Treasure is not the reward,
    The hunt is the prize.
    Oldest find: 5,000 year old copper spearhead
    Oldest coin: 1699 William III halfpenny
    Purdiest coin: 1832 Capped Bust quarter
    Coolest find: USA button with blue threads still on shank

    To the waters edge
    Swishing on the outter ledge
    Coins, not in the hedge!
    From the land of the Bluenose.....life is a beach at least till the tide comes in and the Bud is all gone. Swish and dig at the drop of a dime!

    If life is beach
    Go swishing and find a leech
    Coins in the breach.

    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:

    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?

    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 ! 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.

    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

    Cheers
