Haiku - Blue Jay Contest Finalized

Blog Posted:5/14/2020 10:39:00 AM

Thank you all for your wonderful entries. I enjoyed them all.  Some of them did not place due to having capital letters, punctuation or had the wrong syllable counts. Thank you all for participating.  I will be visiting your poems soon to comment.

Congratulations to the winners!
