Shintai Haiku


FIRST PLACE 


                sultry night
                the cold war
                between us


Ernest Wit



 

SECOND PLACE 


Nothing's what it seems
in the world of men — I turn
to the summer moon

Priscilla H. Lignori

 

THIRD PLACE


children’s moon
looking from one world
towards another

Lynette Arden


 

 

 


SEVEN HONORABLE MENTION

 

                I tread on the daisies
                thoughtless
                on the way to the daffodils


J. Frolík

 


morning breeze ...
sipping the sunlight
from my tea cup


 Chen-ou Liu 

 

heat wave
a gulp of shade
under a beech tree


Ernest Wit


 

sun-baked stones…
blink of a lizard
startles the stillness


Dawn Bruce

 

an old fence
is just being repaired
by spiders


J. Frolík


 

tempest moon
already against
the next war


Michael Henry Lee

 

the maple leaf
sheltering last night's raindrops
from the morning sun


Marie Shimane

 



 ZATSUEI (HAIKU OF MERIT)




boards and surfers
ride the train--
making waves


Helen Buckingham



a hall in the railway station -
a bumblebee doesn`t know
where to travel


J. Frolík




being one with
the endless prairie summer--
cosmos in a grain


Devin Harrison

 



nimbus clouds -
the sway of her dupatta*
as she rushes home

* a long scarf worn by Indian women


Arvinder Kaur




arrival platform-
red roses spread their scent
from a trash bin


Lavana Kray

 



the dark
leaks into the light --
painting the day gray


CaroleAnn Lovin


garden party
painting my nails
to match the lavender


Devika Menon




hailstorm
bang bang bang
a heavy gun


Vessislava Savova



last day of school
the zipper stuck on a thread
of the frayed bookbag


Mary Stevens
