Window cat wonders
at snowflakes dancing up, down
Why can’t she catch them?
Her haiku was selected by a panel of four judges using a blind review process. There were 39 other entries. Thanks to all who submitted a haiku!
Shout out to Carrie Girton, Public Services Librarian & Web Developer, for creating the haiku website and managing the submissions. Another shout out to Ruth Orth, Regional Campus Social Media and Communications Specialist, for including the contest in the digital signage system.
I’d also like to thank the other judges: Krista McDonald, Library Director, Dr. Theresa Kulbaga and Dr. Tory Pearman, Associate Professors from the Department of Literature, Languages, and Writing.
