Winner of Carpe Diem’s Departure Kukai!

I checked in on the Carpe Diem Haiku Kai website the other day and found a wonderful surprise. The haiku I’d submitted for our last kukai (haiku competition) had been chosen as the winner! I was delighted and humbled by this news. I never thought my haiku would actually win.

The theme of the kukai was “departure” and this was my winning haiku:


on the autumn breeze
one last leaf


My prize is the opportunity to create my own haiku e-book with Chevrefeuille Publications. I have always wanted to do this, so it’s a bit of a dream come true. When the e-book is ready it will be available for free download on the Carpe Diem website.

I’d like to once again thank everyone who voted for my haiku, and congratulate the runner-up Laura Williams.
