Over one hundred poets from around the world were represented in the 2017 Golden Haiku Awards. Beautiful signs showcasing the spring themed haiku were posted in tree boxes along the sidewalks of Washington D.C. I was honored to have my haiku, home improvement, chosen from among the 1700 entries in this year's contest! Here I am with my sign on 19th and K!
