Vote for The Autumn Haiku Contest, Part 2

16 Jan


White flower (640x432)
The new year has began, and it’s time to vote for The Autumn Haiku Contest.  Forty six haiku have been submitted from all over the world including USA, France, Ireland, Greece, Israel, Australia, Philippines, and India.  Much thanks to the entrants who have shared their love of haiku.

I’m publishing the haiku entries in series of four posts starting on January 13 (Monday), January 16 (Thursday), January 20 (Monday), and January 23 (Thursday).  Please vote for your favorite haiku in each post, and the best four haiku will be announced on  February 3 (Monday).  Then we’ll choose the winner from the best four.

The first eleven entries were published earlier this week.  Click here to see the list and cast your vote.  Here are the next twelve entries.  Please vote for your favorite, using the poll at the end of the page.

Christmas eve

grandma  in bed

hears silent night

13.

Autumn noon

the pigeons pass grains

beak to beak

14.

A soft autumn light-

trying to lean as close

to your warm body

15.

Autumn leaves –

she confirms grandma’s

graveyard

16.

Solitary walk –

a soliloquy of leaves

under my feet

17.

Her reassuring smile-

    mount Fuji shines through the

    red maple leaves

18.

Opulent fog-

     at the same cross roads

again

19.

A little cold —

the iron fence try to muffle

a tucked blushing leaf

20.

Lively gusts

racing in the playground

children and leaves

21.

Crossing the states

the geese break my anxiety

while in a bus

22.

Bristling turkey

bares its talons to the song

of knives

23.

Wind blown

autumn leaves

turning that last page
