First Prize:

the familiar cough
of the neighbor's old Chevy
winter solitude

finding her letter
in his old leather jacket
winter solitude

2nd Honorable Mention (2):

snuffing out candles
just for the joy of their scent
winter solitude

new year's confetti
..... the accordion player

The conference was an absolute blast. Saturday night we got the results of the Tokutomi Haiku Contest that the society held this spring, which was judged by two haiku masters in Japan. People from all over the world entered the contest, and my haiku won third prize in! Here is it is:
persimmon fabric 
folded in tissue paper
