The Haiku Foundation here created the HaikuNow! international contests to expand opportunities for writers of English-language haiku. Prizes will be awarded for English-language haiku in three categories: traditional, contemporary and innovative. Results of 2012 were announced on April 17. For past winners, see the HaikuNow! Archive here.
These are the haiku I submitted on March 26, 2012 for this contest
rain mingles with mud—
the big house falls asunder
a ripe fragrant apple thrown into
an educated jobless
worm injecting life into a corpse
