Poems for National Punctuation Day®

Last September, I entered the National Punctuation Day® haiku contest at National Punctuation Day®. Contest entries were – you guessed it – haiku poems about punctuation.

I didn’t place in the contest (congrats to all the winners!), so I thought I’d post my poems here:

Chasing ellipsis:
he kisses her … one … two … three
times before she leaves.


Lost along the way,
she slows, grasping for the end,
nearly comma-tose.
