Without further ado, here are the runners-up for the 2nd Annual 2020 Loud Coffee Press Haiku Contest. The theme of the contest was "sound or silence." Congratulations and thank you to all participants!


Silenced

Lisa Reynolds


can't tell anyone

about the voices inside

they control my tongue

Remember: Walls Have Ears.

The couple next door

a full orchestra of sex

he’s out on parole.

Wind and Wave

Linda Marie Steele


Wind finds its voice through

the leaves. Wave speaks by crashing

into shore again.

Ape stares in silence

At a thousand ink squiggles

On slices of tree

I'm betting cow farts

Create a soft, steamy breeze

Sweet grass-fed latte
