Here our winners from the 2nd Annual Garden Haikus for Earth Day Contest! We had hundreds of submissions, but we were able to narrow it down to one winner per category.
"Beautiful striped bees
pollinating blue flowers,
in the huge rock bed" Josue Guzman, Rodriguez Elementary
"Green spouts all around,
head to toe how fast they grow,
ground to bowl they'll go" Connor Dengel, Klein High School
"Fresh food from the Earth
nourish your mind, body, soul
happiness, wellness" Kelly Richards
Rich Levy, Executive Director of Inprint and Best Poet of 2011 by the Houston Press described Josue Guzman's haiku as "a vivd image, perfectly comfortable in the 5-7-5 form, and in its quiet way it's about the cycle of life---animal life, plant life, and the Earth, where it all ends up."
Congrats to all of our Garden Haikus for Earth Day Contest winners!
