Shintai Haiku

  


First Place

 

                half-moon in a foreign sky
                the other half
                I keep at home


Lydia Lecheva



Second Place

 

fissured fields
watering the crop
with his tears


Dr Brijesh Raj


Third Place

 

ice fog
everything familiar
unfamiliar


Debbie Strange

 

 

 


 


Seven Honourable Mention 

(In no particular order)

 



            at sunset 

            the young pine’s shadow 

            taller than pines


 

Patrick Doerksen 


 




a hallelujah --
brightness pierces from behind
billowing winter clouds


Jennifer Hernandez

 




mailbox peeks above
shoulder-high piles of snow
lone sentinel

 

Jennifer Hernandez 


Ten degrees bright frost
ten inches unwelcome rain
all one winter day


Michele Waering


frosted trunk…
the futile beak strikes
of a woodpecker


Ali Znaidi



Sip of ice cream soda
never lasted long enough,
just like childhood.


 Terry Adams

 



foggy window pane -- 

the child scribbles 
a smiley
