chameleon

Parkeenka Ntato
(2,4,4) = 18 pts

and

the neighbour's
unkempt lawn...
all these butterflies

polona
(1,4,7) = 18 pts

I especially like the ambiguity of line 3. Do I hear annoyance? surprise? delight? envy? All of the above?

in all directions

Tom Painting
(0,5,7) = 17 pts


Third Place  — 16 Points

(0,3,7) = 13 pts


Seventh Place  — 12 Points
the wind
through the buffalo grass
Little Big Horn

martin gottlieb cohen
(1,3,3) = 12 pts

Historiku is a form that rarely works for me, but this one nails it. Echoes of Basho, sure, but with a distinctly American accent.


Eighth Place — 11 Points
crickets —
scattering the scent
of dewy grass

kaiser
(1,2,4) = 11 pts

back country —
switchgrass covering
the soldier's worn stone

late summer
a squirrel leaps high
to cross the lawn

A wonderful example of 'show' over 'tell' and the power of implication. We know the lawn has escaped control by the height of the squirrel's leaps.

Strongly pictorial, while still leaving the reader something to do.

the slow wave
of summer grass

fresh mown hay —
pulling on the nostrils
the smell of the childhood

Petru-Ioan Garda
(0,0,3) = 3 pts

I find this haiku brimming with nostalgia; though I feel it would benefit from having the articles (the) removed, in particular from the last line. Still, it evokes for me that one-and-only scent of new mown hay - reading it, I found myself transported - a childhood vision of myself, standing in a field and sniffing. Beautiful.

pouting child
a stubborn clump of crabgrass
under the swing set

Shamim Mmbone

I like this one for its imagery and potential grace, though it's flawed. Blue grass is a cool season grass rather than summer. It's worth revising for submission elsewhere. I'd suggest something like: cold morning--/mosquito eggs swaying/on a dewy blade.

(Staff note: Shamim is from Kenya)
