Haiku Winners for National Poetry Month (#npm)

BlogPicture_Haiku_vrs1.1

In honor of National Poetry Month, Wattpad held a week long haiku contest. We had more than 1,200 submissions, and we were blown away by the quality of all of your poetry. It was a real struggle to choose winners from so many quality submissions, but our team of judges eventually whittled down the entries to the following three favorites:

What a Twist!
Wattpadder Kuronoshio exposes the bitter secret behind paper postage:

Dry tongue licking stamps
Dead horses and vinegar
I prefer email

Hilarious Haiku
Brady Glass went for haiku humor with his poem, “Tasty Food”:

Pigs are so tasty
Bacon, pork chops, ribs and ham
Oink, chop, sizzle, yum

はいくです。
Anastasia Clarke incorporated themes from traditional haiku by referencing nature in her poem:

Life in the forest.
Every line tells a story.
Humans cut it short.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all the Wattpadders who participated!
