Winners of the Clermont College Library’s 7th Annual Haiku Contest

Clermont College Library received 65 exceptional haiku entries from 26 students this year.

To quote Professor Reeves, one of our two judges, “What a great bunch—it was a very hard decision.”

Grand prize winner, David Fiora, won a $50 gift card and all winners will be published in the East Fork, Clermont’s online literary journal.

Dark was the long night
Cold was the spotted pavement
Beneath the gardens

Light in the window
Smoke rolling from the chimney
I know I am home

Life where none should be
Pushing through the concrete crack.
Blossoming flower.

cracked ice breaks beneath
my weight, i fall cold and near
the edge of my life

The slow rising fire
Called out to me in the night
It knows my secrets
