The Haiku Winner of Four VIP Liberty Belle Winterfest Dinner Cruise Tickets

Earlier this week we gave your, our dear readers, the opprotunity to win four VIP tickets for a luxurious dinner aboard the Liberty Belle paddlewheel vessel during the 43rd-annual Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade taking place at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

You came through and we loved them all. Here's the entries including the winner!

These were all great, but there can be only one! And the winner is...

This one had a rhyme, it stuck to the nature imagery of a traditional haiku, and -- most importantly! -- we liked it best! Simple and lovely. Enjoy your dinner cruise for four aboard the Liberty Belle Mitch Schuller!

We want to thank everyone for their haiku submissions. We hope you enjoyed creating them as much as we enjoyed reading them. Tickets are still available for dinner aboard the Liberty Belle. Visit for your tickets.

And there are plenty of other way to enjoy the 43rd-Annual Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade which sets sail at 6:30 p.m. in Fort Lauderdale's Downtown, traveling 12 miles first east on the New River, then north on the Intracoastal weighing anchor at 10:30 p.m. in Lake Santa Barbara in Pompano Beach.
