The original blog post from June 16 – Exploring Poetry Groups … The Poetry Form – had an attached haiku contest. The contest didn’t yield a lot of entries, but it did turn out some fabulous entries.
And the winner is … Tonia Marie Houston of Edgewood, Illinois! Tonia will receive a signed copy of Shellie Enteen’s Journey to the Meaning of Love.
Shellie said that Tonia’s entry had “a lot of evocative imagery.”
Tonia Marie Houston – Tonia just launched her blog on July 3 – stop in and give her some encouragement!
Oaks unveil flames seared mantles
Yield ash before frost
The other two entries, though not prize-winners in this contest, are more than worthy of an honorable mention.
Tender buds reaching
Outstretched to meet a new sun
Awake my old friends
Fair skin surrender
And pool-side tan envy shade
My cautious summers
