2018 ukiaHaiku Festival Contest

 

daffodils
the spring
in my step

Martha Magenta

 

“Comments made by our Judge: Michael Dylan Welch
This simple and straightforward poem celebrates spring – not just the
time of year but the joy and energy it can give us. The wordplay of
“spring” works well to convey the time of year as well as a feeling of
energetic bounciness.”

Haibun – Decoy

 

Decoy

 

I found a maggot, the size of a cat, on the kitchen floor. It mimicked a
cat, grew ears and whiskers and rubbed against my hand
affectionately. But I could still see the rings around its furless body
and its grubby white skin. Then it sank sharp claws into my hand and
tried to take a bite.

 

recurring dream
the clatter
of the recycling truck

Tanka – Red Lights

 

I remember
discovering the sea
for the first time
floating in a car inner tube
with my father in his happy days

 

 

in the attic
I discover memories
hidden away
the last vestige of scent
from a long pressed flower
