One of my Haiku at Vita Brevis

Vita Brevis recently hosted a poetry competition. It was a lot of fun, it was very well attended, and there was an abundance of great submissions. I am honoured to have been selected as the winner.

Brian Geiger, the founder and Editor has published my submission on his online magazine. You can read it here.

Thanks to Vita Brevis and to everyone who stopped by to read and comment on all the entries. Every submission there was deserving of the win. I feel extremely lucky today and plan on buying a Lottery ticket.

Haiku Poetry Competition

Inspired by watching my grandson play in the garden this morning I wrote this “short one” and submitted it to the Vita Brevis Haiku Poetry Competition. It’s a unique contest that takes place entirely in the comment section of the announcement post. Go on, then, submit your poem.

filter through the trees and hide
