Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
After gathering all the votes I can now announce our winner of our third kukai "juxtaposition". It was a tough task this time to create a haiku for this kukai, because of the limitation that you had to use "juxtaposition" in it.
In total there were 24 haiku submitted by 9 haiku poets. And I will announce the winner in a little while, because I would ask you all something.
As you maybe remember I have asked your permission to open up the judging for the kukai also to haiku poets who didn't submit haiku. I think that it will not be a problem, but I really love to ask your opinion on it. So please share your thoughts about this with us in the comments field. Thank you.
I am proud to announce our winner for this third CDHK Kukai "Juxtaposition" .... and the winner is Ese of Ese's Voice .... congratulations Ese you have won the opportunity to create your own e-book with a maximum of 30 pages or 50 haiku and you will be our featured haiku poetess in November 2015. Ese won this kukai with the following haiku (9 points):
tepid and bittersweet
in the last sip of coffee
And our "runner-up" who wins an "own" Tokubetsudesu episode in November 2015 is .... Hamish Gunn of Haiku Forest with the following haiku (7 points):
at the waterfront
the moon bumps against the shoreline
-a hollow bowl sings
