  1. Below is excerpted from the judge’s comment by Roberta Beary:

    Sometimes a haiku works because it is just right. I feel the ocean wind, taste the salt, and sense the dismay of the one hoping for spare change. And then I add to the mix what I bring as reader. For me it is a childhood memory of an ocean boardwalk. Keep moving, my father says. But I find myself still looking back. For this gift, I thank the writer of this choice haiku.
