Omentielva Lempea - Quenya / Sindarin Haiku Contest

Though I think everyone has seen the message on Elfling, I repeat it here nevertheless :

Omentielva Lempea organises a Quenya / Sindarin haiku contest. It would be nice to have the participation of some Aglardhers!

Please check the home page of Omentielva for the rules.

Looking forward to receiving your submission.

Er nat i losta

A new version:

Aiweo líre -

tree's nakedness

Er nat ya losta
aldasse lasselóra --
aiweo líre

One thing that blooms
on the leafless tree --
bird's song
