9th Annual BMCC Library's Can You Haiku Contest

Professor Dorothea Coiffe started the BMCC Library's Can You Haiku Contest nine years ago and continues to coordinate and co-judge it every year during Asian Heritage Month at BMCC. Her co-judge this year was Professor Priscilla Rogers-Fahy.
Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry that has three lines of 17 syllables-consisting of 5, 7, & 5 syllables, respectively. (The rules for writing Haiku in Japanese are strict, but in other languages it is simpler.)

Eligible entrants needed to conform to this year's rules. Each poem had to be an original haiku in the 5-7-5 format and contain any variation of the word CLASS. On April 23, the judges declared two winners and two runner-up/honorable mentions, all of whom were BMCC students.

The winners were:

My old memories
Replaced sadly by new ones
But still life goes on.

-J. Portelli

I'm a city girl
New York, New York born & raised,
Colorful and cool.

-A. Velazquez

Runner-up/honorable mentions were:

Rip me a new heart
Molded from inside of you
Explain your thing, love.

-A. Onuoha

The old world is gone
It is a new world I see
Right now I am free

-Z.M. Abardo

8th Annual BMCC Library's Can You Haiku Contest

Professor Dorothea Coiffe started the BMCC Library's Can You Haiku Contest eight years ago and continues to coordinate and co-judge it every year during Asian Heritage Month at BMCC. Her co-judge this year was Professor Elise Song.
Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry that has three lines of 17 syllables-consisting of 5, 7, & 5 syllables, respectively. (The rules for writing Haiku in Japanese are strict, but in other languages it is simpler.)

Eligible entrants needed to conform to this year's rules. Each poem had to be an original haiku in the 5-7-5 format and contain any variation of the word CLASS. On April 23, the judges declared two winners and two runner-up/honorable mentions, all of whom were BMCC students.

The winners were:

Smiling old blind man
With fake, no class, shiny coin,
Resting in his hand.

-R. Lemnaru

Secondhand things, but
I still live like a princess:
A high-class lowlife.

-R. Elliott

Runner-up/honorable mentions were:

All human beings
Breathing, bleeding, all in sync
Your class is my class

-D. Ventura

Individuals
So intelligent while free
Classes of them move

-E.B. Alulema
