Carpe Diem Extra January 20th 2018, The Results of the Departure kukai

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

First I have to apologize because I am very late with publishing the results of our Departure kukai of last year 2017.

The Winner of this kukai, with 12 points, is Isabel Caves with the following beauty:

With this winning haiku Isabel has won the opportunity to create her own E-Book together with Chèvrefeuille's Publications.

And the "runner-up", with 6 points, is a beautiful haiku written by Laura Williams (a.k.a. Lolly):

hesitates before take-off --
