#05 - FIRST PLACE
the dream fading
as I tell it
Comments:Lovely haiku, but I wonder if it would be even stronger if the second line would be: the dream fading
#21 SECOND PLACE
her newborn’s fingers . . .
outside the nursery window
cherry trees in bud
--Catherine J.S. Lee, USA
#09 THIRD PLACE
at the edge of the precipice
--Ramona Linke, Germany
waiting every day
for the forsythia's flowers –
cat stretches in the sun -
cherry buds do the same
Comments:The image has possibilities, but the execution is wordy.
budding trees –
the army of turbans
sits in the park
--Patricia Lidia, Romania; 0040723257725
a lime bud
glowing in the dawn...
--Keith A. SIMMONDS; T & T
I ask him if he sees
a bud too
--Marleen Hulst; The Netherlands
guild the old icon -
the bloom dies
the bud lives on
in his memory
--Reason A. Poteet, IN, USA
of fecund buds
in the breeze
a breath away
Comments:"breath" is a beautiful choice, beautifully placed.
the rose bud -
a sharp thorn
echo in the mountains-
from the buds of pine
falling ice crystals
--Krzysztof Kokot PL
silent pink dawn
the crab apple tree buds
--Jacek Margolak; Poland
Comments:I'd generally advise against having a verb stand alone as line 3, but this time, coming after the rather crabbed (pun
intended) second line, it works.
and tulip buds via UPS--
waiting for a kiss
lifting the cover
she makes me take a smell
--Ralf Bröker, Germany
the magnolia bud
now a blossom
Buds on the branches…
on my room a withered rose
in an old vase
--Magdalena Dale - Romania
Comments: I would use in rather than on my room in second line.
out of the twilight buds
Comments:I actually preferred #19 to a couple of these, but didn’t vote for it because “dawn” and “twilight” both were mentioned in the
same moment. If “twilight” had been eliminated, it would have been a strong haiku rather than a confusing one.
Through my March window
snow piles grow high as my heart --
When will the trees bud?
expanding over again
- - - - - - -
'RESILIENCE' was received while voting had already started and therefore was not part of the voter's list.
Tremor turn trauma;
Rainless flood with nuclear rain…
Cherry blossoms bud.
--G. Newton V. Chance, Trinidad and Tobago
The Kukai - a haiku contest, where each person submits a haiku, and then, becomes a judge. When all the poems are compiled in a list, the contestants comment, vote, and give scores to poems of their choice. One cannot comment on, nor vote for one’s own poem. At the end of the voting process winners emerge, the selection based on votes by the kukai’s contestants.
