A big thank you to everyone who participated in the Helen Fowler Library’s first haiku contest!

Congratulations to our first place winner, John Deaton of Redding, CA.

Clear cold mountain streams
Cascade to the restless sea
Dark clouds thundering

Second place goes to Linda Maich of Denver, CO.

Red stained hollyhocks
along black stone path hold gold
pollen and night rain

Our third place winner is Lesley LeFevre of Centennial, CO.

Moon-never so bright,
As the night before finals,
Wonder and awe struck
