Crazyhorse Issue 88, Fall 2015

Thanks everyone for participating in the first ever ZingarPoet haiku contest. There were several wonderful entries and making a final decision was tough. Here is a list of the top three haiku  (third place is actually a tie) and one honorable mention. Please send your mailing addresses to me at zingarapoet@gmail.com and I will send you a copy of the latest issue of Crazyhorse Literary Journal, featuring the work of the 2015 Contest winners, via USPS sometime this week.


Fist Place:

Purple mountain fog
reminds me forgetfulness
is a cool shower
~Kelsey Satalino

Second Place:

Loving or lethal?
Slaughtered remains suggest both,
but that’s neither, right?
~Eve Ott

Tied for Third:

fifteen panes of glass
divide the passing street scene
into small chapters
~Roy Beckemeyer

writing a haiku
is like stuffing the whole world
into a small box
~Dennis Etzel

Honorable Mention:

These days, when it rains, tiny fish swim the streets, the lawn our lilypad
~Lynne Barrett
