Johnny Baranski Memorial Haiku Contest

Honorable Mention

morning frost
how brightly shines
the barbed wire

 Florin C. Florian
Botoșani, Romania


Winter finds the prison yard, yet an inmate discovers unintended beauty that even the prison walls can’t keep out. A sense of hope in a dark time. I enjoyed the nod to Johnny Baranski, who wrote so many prison poems.

L-am scris direct în engleză având pe retină o imagine tulburătoare dintr-o carte despre Auschwitz. Încerc, aici, o adaptare în limba română:

gerul dimineții // ce intens strălucește // sârma ghimpată

Tomorrow, Steliana Voicu and her family will celebrate the centenary of the Great Union Day--the unification of Transylvania, Bessarabia and Bukovina with the Romanian Kingdom on Dec. 1, 1918. They look forward to a military parade and fireworks while eating beans with sausages, meat rolls and cakes.

National Day--
