Volume XIV, Number 4: December, 2012

During 2012 The Heron's Nest exposed you to approximately 500 English-language haiku, selected for publication by our Editors. Each year, after the December issue of The Herons Nest is released, YOU (the reader) are invited to pick 10 haiku from those 500 that we offered in the March, June, September and December issues, as your "Readers' Choices" . . . those that stuck in your mind, or were special for you. To view back issues click on "Archives".

      Last January (2012), seventy voters chose five haiku, and four haiku poets, as their favorites. To review last year's selections you can click here: AWARDS.

Vote for your 2012 Favorites . . .

We want your selections for the "best of the Nest" haiku from 2012.

      It's pretty simple; use this ARCHIVES link to review all of the 2012 back issue haiku contents. After your review, you will need to tell us the full name of the poet, first line of the poem, and the issue in which the poem appears, when you vote, also, please rank your choices, from first through tenth. It's fun to read and tour back through 2012. Send your choices directly to: John Stevenson, Managing Editor at by January 15, 2013 . . . Thanks for your time and input!
