ukiaHaiku Festival - The Fifteenth Annual, 2017

atlas moth
the places we thought
we'd go

Honourable Mention
Jane Reichhold International Prize

Judge's Comments:

"...The fourth poem brings to mind Dr. Seuss's inspirational book Oh, the Places You'll Go, an overtone that heightens the melancholy regret of not being able to visit hoped-for destinations, perhaps due to old age or sickness—and it's the atlas moth, of all things, that suggests this loss..."

—Michael Dylan Welch, 14 April 2017, Sammamish, Washington

(Note: there were 1,840 entries to the contest)
