Haiku Contest Winners Announced



Congratulations to the winners of our haiku contest!  I received entries from a wide range of backgrounds — from the casual writer to haiku fanatics. But, the results — your poems —  are creative proof that  all of you have embraced social media.  As a contest that was promoted through social media  about social media, it was amazing to see it in action because of its widespread reach and the amount of participation we received.

Without further ado, the seven winners:
