2019 Haiku Contest – The Winners!

2019 Haiku Contest Results

Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 Dreamers Haiku Contest!

Small. Mighty.

Haiku contest: Bird in the arroyo

We had over 600 Haiku submitted to this contest. The number and quality of the entries made choosing the winner and honorable mentions very difficult, but we’re so pleased with the results. We hope you are too!

A special thank you to guest judge, Dr. Reinekke Lengelle, Symposium Co-Editor for the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, Assistant Professor at Athabasca University, and of course, Poet and Writer.

Winner:
Merrily Down the Stream

overnight downpour
flash stream in the arroyo
happy ducks paddling


Honorable Mentions
empath

i am an ant
carrying the weight of a collapsed star
that doesn’t belong to me

Found

Found: thoughts of you and
fragments of her smashed guitar
swept under the rug.

Cut snip cut snip contemplate
Yikes time to pay rent

Why Dream

why dream ahead
when the fledgling maple leaves
beg our attention (now)

Hummingbird

Hummingbird hovers
At my window, lifted by its constant mantra—
A hosanna asking to be shared

Tea Haiku

vapours of rose tea
filling the garden
of our past
