We received more than 100 incredible haikus! Thank you to everyone who participated in the Teen Poetry Contest. The scores are in and the winners are…

Middle School 1st Place
“Snow” by Greta M., 7th grade, Gayton Library
A glisten of light
A vacant crisp horizon
Waiting to be touched

Middle School 2nd Place
Corina K., 7th grade, Tuckahoe Area Library
Sky grey, conflicted
Wind sways through long yellowed grass
Trees bare and deadly

High School 1st Place
“Before the Rain” by Jikai Z., 10th grade, Tuckahoe Area Library
Before rain takes place
stormy clouds line up to spray
adoring fans wait

High School 2nd Place
Monika D., 11th grade, Twin Hickory Area Library
Straighten curly hair
Flat hair curled to tight ringlets
No one is happy
