Haiku Contest: Grand Prize, 2nd & 3rd Places

GRAND PRIZE – Neil Ruddy


Norman Bates washes

away all traces of the

women in his life



2ND PLACE – Allen McNealy


I had this dream where

I sneezed and a fire broke

out in my navel.



3RD PLACE – Elizabeth Catalano


Longtime fantasy

Reenactment realized

Gary was Flashdance!

Thank you to all who entered. You made my work fabulously arduous.

Over the next few posts, we will better get to know our winners.

Tomorrow, check back to read the winning Honorable Mentions, and the winners in the “New to Writing Haiku” category. Haiku on!





Author: allehall

I am a writer. I write to explore childhood: literary essays and short fiction, journalism, and three haiku. My published work expresses my belief that everything which did or did not happen to me as a child is manifesting in everything that is or is not happening to me today. More importantly, it is also manifesting for my children. I believe funny is the new navel-gazing, and that the best funny keeps a penny's worth of serious in an accessible pocket. Little-known fact: I have a completed novel decorating the inside of a desk drawer. Perhaps it is not funny enough.
