28 September 2016: Overjoyed to receive news that my haiku, "drifting snowflakes", has placed third in the prestigious Harold G. Henderson Memorial Awards! :D Many grateful thanks to the Haiku Society of America and the judges, Cor van den Heuvel and Scott Mason, for this incredible honour!

drifting snowflakes
the police car's ascent
up our driveway

The judges' commentary: As we turn from drifting sea spray to drifting snowflakes we also shift emotional registers with this powerfully portentous moment. Beginning with the sideways descent of those snowflakes, juxtaposed in the middle line with the curious "ascent" of a police cruiser, the scene seems to unfold in slow motion as if captured in some altered-reality snow globe. But any such illusion is instantly shattered in line three (most especially in its use of the personal pronoun "our") as the poet drives the action -- and our anxiety -- home.
