2021 Haiku Contest Winners


The 2021 Haiku Contest was a great success at the Chevy Chase Neighborhood Library! We received so many thoughtful entries and it was a joy to read each one! Thank you to all who participated! Here are the winning entries:

Child (submitted by Claire M.)
Cherry blossoms near,
Like the buzz of bumblebees,
Pollinating spring.

Teen (submitted by Matthew M.)
Reading Maze Runner,
Learning new words everyday

Teen Honorable Mention (submitted by Andrew M.)
Tip of the needle
Marks end of isolation
With vaccination.

Adults (submitted by Marian R.)
Breath betrayed our trust. 
Sighs fanned the embers of fear. 
Hope alone defeats.

Adult Honorable Mention (submitted by Jennifer B.)
with library card
and vaccine card I’ll travel
by book or by plane

These and other wonderful Haiku will also be displayed at the Chevy Chase Branch!
