Congratulations to the winners of our Haiku Contest from February! I received the final judge's rankings last night and am posting the winners HERE first! All three winners' poems will remain on this website for the entirety of April, per the contest rules, and to help celebrate National Poetry Month. Congratulations again, and thanks for entering!
1st Place: Jim Collier, Abingdon, VA
silken strands without a flaw –
weave for me some dreams
2nd Place: Gil Wetmore, Independence, VA (Gil also wins the "Last Man Standing" honors, as his poem was the last one received before the deadline)
Chrissie Peters writes.
Spins out rhymes on paper now.
Binds in volume form.
3rd Place: Dory Hudspeth, Alvaton, KY (Dory also wins the "Go the Distance" honors, as she lives the greatest distance from Bristol, TN, of all the folks who entered)
Title: What Holds
In the post-hardware
age - screws, hinges, nails, be gone
miracles clasp fast.
