First Place in AHS Summer Solstice Haiga Kukai!!

I’m absolutely over the moon to receive first place in the Australian Haiku Society Summer Solstice 2019 Haiga Kukai (non-seasonal), as well as a highly commended in the seasonal category. What a lovely New Year’s surprise – I never expected first place!

These were my entries:

 

painted cow –
the village boy’s makeup
still taboo

(First Place, non-seasonal category)

 

solstice night –
the insomnia
of bushfire

(Highly Commended, seasonal category)
