Annnd the winning haiku? Well. They were all perfect. 😉 However, EiC of Vita Brevis had the hard job of choosing, and we all, I think applaud his choice. Brava Hélène Vaillant!
You’re the best! I’m glad everyone enjoyed our second Haiku contest, and I’d like to personally thank all of you who left such thoughtful responses on other submitters’ haiku–that’s what this is really about. We all know how good it feels to receive feedback on our work. Good on you for giving that to others, and thanks for making this so fun!
I’d like to recognize a few honorable mentions before announcing the “winning” haiku:

Heart in my wounded hand,
she bares her skin and shivers:
such grace in old scars.

Dry leaves falling
Silently on sunlit church
Tears cleanse the path home

On this Earth
On this earth I’ve found
In even bitter winters
A warm summer’s day.
