Editors' Choice Award

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.
