Further success for Marietta McGregor

Along with four of her poems being recently chosen among the best haiku in “The Mainichi” in Japan for 2015, Australian haiku poet Marietta McGregor has also gained two top-ten placings in the Fourth Annual Haiku Contest run by an American literary magazine called “The Lincoln Underground” – this competition requires that entries comply with a 5-7-5 format:

racing the ebb tide
children dash to write their names
in water color

– Second place

tumbled steambed rocks
playing deep arpeggios…
rivers in spring thaw

– Tenth place
