The Heron’s Nest announced today the results of their annual Readers’ Choice Awards as voted on by readers of the journal. This year’s awards cover poems published in The Heron’s Nest in 2015. I am pleased to say that the following haiku of mine, from the December 2015 issue, received enough votes to be in the top 20:
in a rush to reach stillness whitewater
In addition, the four poems I published in The Heron’s Nest during 2015 received enough votes to place my name among the year’s most popular poets.
Many thanks to the editors and the readers of The Heron’s Nest for valuing my work enough to publish and vote for it. Very humbling!
