The British Haiku Society Awards, 2020

Thrilled to receive the following award:


sea pebbles
glistening in the sun
we, too
lose more of ourselves
with every passing wave

Honourable Mention


Judge's comments:

The pattern of surges and calms exhibited worldwide by the Covid-19 pandemic is here witnessed in this modest but productive observation from nature. How like the pebbles we are, in this together, losing millions over time, with each passing wave. The lament is clear but restrained, anchored in the natural world.

—Michael McClintock
