Well that was a pleasant surprise.
My normal morning trawl through the emails included one that tells me I’ve won the haiku competition on TGN. Cool.
The winning haiku was one of three I entered. My entry in total read:
Are you sufficiently zen to read this? Well, if you’re sitting comfortably on your tatami mat, with your green tea to hand in its raku bowl, and the blossom falling gently on the moss garden outside, then I’ll begin.
Colour going dry
Cannot re-blend luck and skill
Wet palette saves day
Paint, pigment, powder
Alchemist blend of magic
Lonely years of paint
Completed finery wins
The proud father smiles
It was the middle one that won. A fun little task.
Secret Weapon isn’t a company I’ve dealt with before, mainly because they seem to focus primarily on their resin bases range (something I’m not much interested in) and are in the US. However, among the scenery details I can easily source locally there are some intriguing bits of their own that I can’t easily get in Blighty.
Oddly, this is not the first or even the second time I’ve written game-related poetry. Somewhere I’ve got a bunch on sonnets about Trollslayers…
Sorry, but I need to ask.
You really are a Renaissance man eh?
I’ve got a couple of washes by Secret Weapon. The stone wash in particularly is particularly good for slapping over a coat of grey paint and giving a nice stoney finish.
Stone wash does a good stone, eh? You’d think it was all part of a plan.
I also have to ask
If you really want to see them I’ll post the other poems when I find them. Not sure where they are right now.
