silent pink dawn
the crab apple tree buds
burst
--Jacek Margolak; Poland
Votes:13**** Points:07
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.

18
Buds on the branches…
on my room a withered rose

--Magdalena Dale - Romania
Votes:221*** Points:09
Comments: I would use in rather than on my room in second line.



19
orchard dawn
out of the twilight buds
birdsong
--Bouwe
Votes:4*2*** Points:10
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.

'RESILIENCE' was received while voting had already started and therefore was not part of the voter's list.

RESILIENCE
Tremor turn trauma;
Rainless flood with nuclear rain…
Cherry blossoms bud.
--G. Newton V. Chance, Trinidad and Tobago

  2. I really like the third line of the third place haiku: "bougainvillea buds"

    I love bougainvillea, probably because it doesn't grow where I live. I associate the plant with warm, tropical places. When I see it, I know I am on vacation.
