One Grand Prize will be awarded and four runner-up prizes.

Haiku is a traditional Japanese poem of three lines, often, but not always, composed of 17 syllables arranged in a 5-7-5 form. Haiku usually contains a reference to nature and the seasons and reflects a Buddhist perception about life.
Orchid blossom drops-
Six weeks you graced my table
I will miss your face.
On a light branch of my heart
I climb where I could not.
Early greens for sale
How will I fit so much sprimg
In my small basket?
When there is no cat
The sun leaps through the window
And into my lap.
