In celebration of National Poetry Month and the National Cherry Blossom Festival, the Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library is pleased to announce the winners of our 2011 Haiku Contest.
So many wonderful poems were submitted that we had a difficult time choosing our favorites. Once again, we had a tie in the adult category! Here is the first, which truly touches the heart:
I've pictures of you.
Eyes closed, I still see your face.
Sad, your voice is lost.
-- Laura Berney
Our second winner in the adult category follows winter into spring:
A lone snowflake melts
as jonquils blossom golden
in the morning sun.
-- L. Martin
