Interests
:iconthe-haiku-club:

First Place (a tie!) goes to heartbeats lanturne by timeraider for in-the-moment writing with striking repetition that shows how every moment is a reason for gratitude, and to gratitude choka by somnomollior for a bittersweet memory in a vivid, finely-described setting, with a hopeful vibe amidst the pain.

HeartbeatsBreath.
Running;
Running aches.
A simple act.
Free.
Breath.
Shores cleft
By wild seas;
A shell breaks loose.
Free.
Breath.
Winter -
Tea cooling.
Some steam escapes.
Free.
Breath.
A sun
Setting low,
Unveiling stars.
Free.
Breath.
Two eyes
Joining mine.
Two hands in mine.
Free.
   UntitledGratitude Choka
alone in my house,
with your undelivered mail,
I hear the washing-machine
clean the clothes you left;
the dust gathers in your room
along with the silences
and the absent fire
lets in the winter's chill,
but I think of you and smile.


Third Place goes to a talk with dad about his cancer tanka by jade-pandora for a powerful, heartbreaking moment of acceptance and togetherness.

A talk with Dad about his cancerI put my trust in the pilot,
the man in the cockpit
to get me home.
With closed eyes he adds,
I can live with that.


Honorable Mentions go to:

warmth haibun by RedDragonfly, a soothing and intimate moment, all the more beautiful for its simplicity.

gratitude haiku by Futurum-Undam, with its pleasantly quirky cadence and artful capture of nuanced emotion.

kind figs katauta by RageOfFluffy, a simple, flowing statement that invites contemplation and imparts a bit of wisdom about gratitude, patience, and compassion, among other such virtues.


Special thanks go to somethingzenzen, saiun, RedDragonfly, and hopeburnsblue for judging the contest, and somethingzenzen, saiun, and RedDragonfly for providing prizes.
