Link love for The Haiku Buckaroo Contest 6.0

My friend Tanja pointed me to My Mommy's Place, home of The Haiku Buckaroo Contest 6.0. Of course, I have to enter this contest. I need the Haiku Buckaroo logo to dress up the margins of this blog. ;)

When I thought about My Mommy's Place and haiku, my mind drifted to my kids. This one's for the boys:

quiet, starlit night
in the stillness before dawn
tiptoes and giggles

And this one's for my baby girl:

her eyes, clear and cool
her curls, a tangle of red
my dominant genes


  1. Oh, I am so glad you entered! These are lovely verses.

  2. Thanks, Leslie! It's been fun reading your haiku and exploring the contest entries as well. :)

  3. Congratulations to you, Julie. You are the new Haiku Buckaroo! You've won the contest!

    Send me an e-mail (admin at and let me know which size t-shirt you'd like (if you click the t-shirt link in the post announcing you as winner, you can view a size chart), how you'd prefer to receive your $25 (gift card? PayPal?) and an address so I can send you your loot!

    Congratulations, Winner!

  4. Leslie, that's terrific! :) I'm so excited!
