Haiku honor

I just found out that a haiku I sent to The Mainichi Daily News was awarded a third place prize in 2010 for the best haiku in English:

no matter
which way the table wobbles
the heat

I suppose I should google myself more often…

You can see many more fine haiku that were printed in The Mainichi Daily News here.

one paper crane on top of a larger one the body’s thresholds

————–

for no reason a song spills out of me as I recycle this cold grey morning

————–

walking between autobiography and nonsense I stop on my walk to murder the sunset

————–

gulping my drink like a man just found in the desert why can’t I be more like George Clooney

 

torn piece of paper with half a list stopped short by the old tree suddenly red

—————-

24 seconds still on the microwave I’m getting old

—————-

talking about back in the day the acid, the crystal, the breeze through the last leaves

—————-

just three almonds in morning light I should draw them

—————-

more garbage trucks clash clatter fill the land with all the broken things
