Paper Wasp Jack Stamm Haiku Competition 2010

Congratulations to Dawn Bruce and Jo McInerney for winning joint first prize in the latest Paper Wasp Jack Stamm Haiku Competition.

Dawn’s winning haiku was:

moonrise
a flow of shadows
along the river

While Jo’s haiku was:

bare hills
the horizon looped
between post and wire

As Jacqui Murray says in her introduction to the Jack Stamm Anthology, ‘Both haiku have an elegant but non-obtrusive complexity that throws up one image whilst inviting more’.

Congratulations also to Jan Dobb for her lovely haiku that was awarded third prize:

spilling
from the sound of thunder
a rain drop
