Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What a wonderful series of haiku were submitted for our Winter Kukai. It wasn't easy to Judge, as I may believe several of you, all the beauties. I think every haiku in this kukai is wonderful and written with a lot of love. However there can be only one winner and a runner-up ...
The winner of the Winter kukai wins the opportunity to create an E-book with a total of 30 pages or 50 haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form and will be our featured haiku poet for February 2016. Our runner-up wins the opportunity to write one of the Tokubetsudesu episodes of February, or will be the "subject" of one of the Tokubetsudesu episodes written by myself.

Many congratulations on your vibrant haiku Hamish ... and also to dt.haase for this beautiful approach to the winter theme. BastetReplyDelete
Congratulations Hamish, such a playful haiku describing winter and dt.haase, your haiku has such a lovely image and echoes the sounds of many winters here in Quebec.ReplyDelete
Congratulations to Hamish and dt.haase :)ReplyDelete
Thank you very much. I thought dt. haase's haiku was really special, though nearly didn't vote for it as there were others I thought were so good, but then went back and saw how it stood out. Thanks very much Chev for running such a smooth Kukai again. I hope it expands. I know there is more interest coming from twitter.ReplyDelete
Congratulations, Hamish! I appreciate your haiku (although i don't often comment as i'm not on tumblr or twitter) and look forward to your e-book.ReplyDelete
