Yale-NUS College Library Announces winners of the Haiku contest!

Yale-NUS College Library sponsored  a Haiku competition to celebrate National Poetry month. The competition closed on 30 April 2015. There were 19 entries and 6 prizes to be given away. The poems were judged on quality of the content and thematic reference to Yale NUS College.

We really enjoyed reading all the Haikus and appreciate everyone’s submission.

A scholarly art.

Sleepless, rethinking my life
Going for breakfast.

it’s like one long beach
never quite running out of
sand and sand castles

Because my close friends
Are always here by my side
I know happiness

Behind blinds, in the
Penumbra of love’s shadow
The two sit: waiting.

There is always so
Much to help you find your bliss
