Best Autumn Haiku

1st Place Prize Winner: Will St. Pierre

Luminescent fire,
Rain towards divested earth.
Leave the trees vacant.

2nd Place: Jeremy Huggins

Empty nest, bald tree,
thrift store answering machine–
always one missing.

3rd Place: Colin Mollenkof

The day has arrived
Lone petal deserts its bud
Dancing in the wind

4th Place (tie): Caroline Jones

russet robin, gone –
a sweeping change blusters in
to redden the ground

4th Place (tie): Eddie Jones

The earth bears fruit as
the shrinking sun slides south and
our hearts swell with thanks
