Results of the National Tanka Contest, First Edition, 2016

In the first edition of this contest, a special event in Romania, 32 authors took part.

The jury, formed by

Șerban Codrin,
Magdalena Dale and
Laura Văceanu,

has decided:

First Place
Ana Drobot, Bucharest

empty windows
allowing the sky
among the ruins –
I am looking for shades of blue
to fill your absence

Second Place
Grigore Chitul

the last ray
gliding beneath the eyelids
like a tear –
the sunset’s shadows
slowly fill the silence

Third Place
Ana Urma 

climbing the path
after the days and nights
of waiting -
in the irises filled with dew
a beam of light

Mention 1
Maria Tirenescu

white petals
scattered in the wind
fill the park today –
you promised that you would come
but I am all alone

Mention 2
Liliana Negoi

in the old shell
you can still hear
the sound of the sea -
otherwise, the entire house
is so quiet...
