I apologize for posting our daily haiku so late today. 

Prof. Yabut monopolized my keyboard all day.

 

I’m pleased to announce that five of f/k/a’s Honored Guests   announcer

have been honored in the 9th Mainichi International Haiku Contest (2005)

 

Second Prizes in the International (English) section went to:

 

 


winter night
firemen coil
smoke-scented rope

 

        john stevenson

 

 

 

 

 






a long fly ball
arcs above the moon
summer deepens

 

         ed markowski 

 

Honorable Mention went to:

 


fading stars—
something of my father
in the bobwhite’s call


         peggy lyles 


 


 








dry air—
the dog shaking off
the ocean


       gary hotham


 


plum gathering
through thick branches
pieces of sky


        roberta beary


 


daylilyG  For your late-night enjoyment, I also want to point out that the

Autumn 2005 edition of Simply Haiku journal is now available online. It

presents haiku and other short-form Japanese poetry by many fine haijin,

including five haiku each by two friends of f/k/a — the ubiquitous and

prolific Ed Markowski and the always-curious Bret Wooldridge (who has

a wife and 6 daughters, but still doesn’t know what women want).

 

Here’s another gem from Mr. Markowski, first published at

tinywords (May 20, 2004):

 






morning moon
the nooks and crannies
of an english muffin

Evan’s regulars got a bit worked up over Ted and Walter‘s take on the Stella

Awards and the related L.A. Times series.
