Haiku Winners for National Poetry Month (#npm)


In honor of National Poetry Month, Wattpad held a week long haiku contest. We had more than 1,200 submissions, and we were blown away by the quality of all of your poetry. It was a real struggle to choose winners from so many quality submissions, but our team of judges eventually whittled down the entries to the following three favorites:

What a Twist! Wattpadder Kuronoshio exposes the bitter secret behind paper postage:

Dry tongue licking stamps Dead horses and vinegar I prefer email

Hilarious Haiku Brady Glass went for haiku humor with his poem, “Tasty Food”:

Pigs are so tasty Bacon, pork chops, ribs and ham Oink, chop, sizzle, yum

はいくです。 Anastasia Clarke incorporated themes from traditional haiku by referencing nature in her poem:

Life in the forest. Every line tells a story. Humans cut it short.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all the Wattpadders who participated! Check out all the submissions and share your own favorites.
