Their poems will be displayed in Translink bus and train stations across the province. Pictured alongside the winners are Chelley McLear from Community Arts Partnership and Colin Dardis from Poetry NI. (Sadly David couldn't make the photo shoot.)
The winning haiku are below:
Stephanie Conn David Braziel
The way the sunlight Sun on dusted glass,
tilts in the late afternoon a seat beside a stranger;
transforms all of this. I’m inside my book.
Ciara McGuigan Karen Legrand
Scrunchy wee ticket Hopping on and off,
that can take you anywhere, no destination in mind,
but mainly to work. but freedom in sight.
You can hear Stephanie, along with one of the judges, Poetry Ni's Colin Dardis, be interviewed on Good Morning Ulster about the competition, here.
