With a total of nine (9) points Joyce Joslin Lorenson (whom was featured in our second "In the Spotlight" episode) is our winner of the "New Life" kukai. Congratulations Joyce. Joyce won with the following haiku:

As you all know in our last Theme Week we have explored that beautiful Sufism prayer the "Latifa Prayer". That Theme Week inspired me to create the next kukai:
This new kukai "Prayer" is now open for your submissions and will be open until June 20th 10.00 PM (CET).
I am looking forward to all of your beautiful haiku themed "prayer" or related to "prayer"
