Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2022 Cleveland Park Library Haiku Contest! We received many wonderful entries this year and we were inspired by the literary creativity of our community.

Spring is delightful

Let's get on our bikes!!

My dear little friends
or corgis to be precise

Flowers are in bloom,
Once you ignore the dead trees,
their beauty triumphs

leo respiro
y alrededor miro
vuelvo al libro

All winter neighbors
Compete to shovel our walk—
We must look ancient
