We are happy to announce the winner of the 2011 DailyHaiku Editors’ Choice Award, Matthew M. Cariello, for his haiku presented during Cycle 9, Week 17. Matthew's evocative haiku moments blend a sense of humanity with a profound appreciation for nature’s diverse cycles. We also wish to highlight the effectiveness of his technical and structural choices.
