Many thanks to all of you who entered The Westcoast Reader Haiku Contest.

We enjoyed reading every one of your poems!
All entries this time were from adult learners,
so the three prizes will go to adults.

Congratulations to our three winners
who wrote their haiku about the topic “school”!
We will be in touch.

The winners are:

I am a mother
I want to love English class
as much as coffee

The sun is sleeping
Students in the little class
Teacher is smiling

Before, we felt lost
Today, we study at school
Tomorrow, we win.
