Haiku Shortlisted for a Touchstone Award

The Haiku Foundation and The Touchstone Award for Individual Poems Committee have announced their shortlist this morning, and I am thrilled to have a poem included. The committee received 660 nominations, which appears to be the most it’s ever received in its seven-year history, and from those chose 29 for the shortlist. Here is mine:

restringing fence wire–
the meadowlark’s song one post
ahead of the wind

Chad Lee Robinson, originally published in Mariposa 35, 2016

Many thanks to the Touchstone Award for Individual Poems Committee and The Haiku Foundation, as well as to Cherie Hunter Day for this haiku’s original publication in Mariposa. And a big congrats to the other poets on the shortlist. The winners will be announced on April 17, International Haiku Poetry Day!
