Golden Haiku Contest 2016
Spring is in the air, and haiku are everywhere in the Golden Triangle section of Washington, D.C.!
The Golden Triangle is “the 43 block neighborhood that stretches from the front yard of the White House to Dupont Circle,” says The Golden Triangle BID (http://goldentriangledc.com/about-us/), and to celebrate the season they sent out a call for haiku from near and far.
The call was heard! The Golden Haiku Contest drew more than 900 submissions…and I’m excited to say that three of mine made the cut! :- D
I love the concept of poetry in public places and am grateful as all get-out that a few of mine — printed on colorful signs and “planted” in roadside flower beds in downtown D.C. — will have a chance to brighten the day of passersby.
spring night . . .
walking and talking
beneath the yellow moon
in the evening sky . . .
riverside wedding —
the flower girl
picks a dandelion
