Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
There were 11 contestants who wrote 23 haiku in total. As you know the contestants of the Kukai, had the opportunity to be the judge for this Kukai. I emailed them an anonymous list of the haiku with the question to give points to the haiku. They had 6 points to share: 3 for the best haiku, 2 for the second best haiku and 1 for the third best haiku.
for the spring sun...
[…] “The idea that chandeliers are fragrant is new. The combination of chandeliers and carpet is perfect. I feel there is much to admire in this haiku”. […]
The winner of the first CDHK Kukai is Rallentanda with her haiku:
fragrant chandeliers drop
a carpet of purple
!!!! CONGRATULATIONS RALLENTANDA !!!!
And the runner up, the second place, in our first CDHK Kukai is Lolly with her haiku:

I love to share here one of my haiku on Wisteria to close this first Kukai. Thank you all for being part of this experience ... thank you for your wonderful haiku submitted for our first CDHK Kukai "Wisteria".
Wisteria flowers look fragile -
a gust of wind
Our second CDHK Kukai "Summertime" is NOW OPEN for submissions. You can submit a maximum of three (new, not published earlier) haiku to our email-address before June 15th 2015. After this closing date I will gather all the haiku and email the anonymous list of haiku to those who have participated in the Kukai for judging the submitted haiku.
If you submit haiku for this second CDHK Kukai "Summertime" please write in the subject-line "Kukai Summertime".
at the seashore
wind of summer through my hair
the shortest night
Don't forget to write "Kukai Summertime" in the subject-line! Good luck! And have fun!
