This morning I was blessed with a wonderful confirmation of my haiku art.  The above haiku won the Carpe Diem Haiku Kai: Kukai of  “Peace of Mind”  the Fall Kukai event.

The other haiku I submitted were:

[this young lark]
in the pomegranate tree
songs of autumn
(numbered 14)

along the river
buzzing insects play
– hide and seek
(numbered 15)

“The winner of the Kukai is given the opportunity to make an e-book of his/her haiku with a maximum of 30 pages and he/she will be the featured haiku poet in the month after the kukai.” (in this case we’re speaking of December 2015).

Chèvrefeuille’s new Kukai is as follows:

“For .. this new haiku contest, I have chosen the following theme: WINTER and of course that’s a very broad range of things and scenes. So I love to challenge you to write/compose haiku in which you can “feel”, “touch”, “smell”, “taste”, “see” and “hear” WINTER, must be easy … don’t you think so too ….!
Submission starts today. You can submit haiku (only haiku with a maximum of three new (unpublished) haiku) until December 23rd 10.00 PM (CET) to our email address:


Please write: kukai Winter in the subject line.”
