The Third Edition of Santoka International Haiga Contest

It is a great honour to announce that we received 45 submissions from 20 countries for the 3rd Santoka International Haiga Contest.
On this occasion, we have singled out 6 haiga for their profound beauty. They received this year’s awards.

her pot

full of transparency

thoughts go round


njen vrč

pun prozračnosti

okolo kruže misli

3rd place

awash in the blues…

somewhere out there

his missing mate


uronjen u plavo…

a negde tamo njegova

nestala ženka

 Highly commended

Debbie Strange, Canada

 

changing seasons…

mother recalls the arc

of her life

 

smena godišnjih doba…

majka se priseća krive

svog života

wings flapping

just a little hint of what

tomorrow brings

 

lepet krila

tek naznaka onoga

što donosi sutra


Hifsa Ashraf, Pakistan


new identity…

I follow the path

of a calm river


novi identitet…

pratim stazu

mirne reke
