I realize that haiku isn't REQUIRED to adhere to the 5-7-5 pattern... but in this country, at least, most do, and it made an easy first cut. So I started by paring down to only those entries that fit that pattern.
Then came the hard part - and it WAS hard. I ended up printing out all of the entries, and cutting them into squares, so I could rearrange them on the floor, comparing similar entries, contrasting styles. I grouped them, again to make choosing a little easier, and then chose 7.
Three were actually quite evocative:
Augmentations sense their place
Welcome to Mark Five
Pelicans in sand,
Ivy engulfs empty halls,
My old friend awaits.
an aging arena
battles here long forgotten
gunfire sounds again
Three were plucked from "I don't have the maps, but I really want them" field:
To play or not play.
That is the question I ask.
Can you choose for me?
Do not have the maps
Missed out on achievement night
Missed raging at Wu
here is my haiku
if i win i can afford
both halo and food!
And one made me laugh out loud:
Not planning to buy
But if you offer for free
Sure why the heck not?
