Uncle Bob Dunn, a.k.a. the Chamberlain, asked me about my favorite haiku. The fairest haiku I have ever seen?

well, Zellie McClellan is the poet!

leaves are laced black on a sky

going green into night

consider this my submission to this hotly contested haiku event. -Jack Cromie


  1. The Haiku Nation is deeply appreciative of Rumpian Jack’s submission. However, we best bear in mind that this is a very competitive contest and no guarantees can be made as to the final recipient of the Rumpian Haiku Poet of the Year Honorary Award. There are some very big guns (no intent to re-ignite a well worn thread here) still to be heard – e.g. the Iowa Haiku crowd, the San Francisco Haiku organization, the Wisconsin Haikuers, etc., etc. We probably won’t know the outcome of this for some time – maybe a decade. Especially if there’s to be any substantive award involved… The Chamberlain

  2. After an introspective challenge while walking our dog Rémy last night, I humbly submit the following for consideration into the

    Manning Powell and Graham
    eye candy for their parents
    our boys like to eat

    Muny, snow cones, grass
    summer times in the city
    noisy cicadas

    I think in haiku
    moi of short connected thoughts
    it suits me the best

    I gaze on water
    nothing relaxes me more
    sweet dreams here I come

    Tim Russert, big guy
    election day not the same
    father’s day so sad
