CONGRATULATIONS to Chrissi who will receive a copy of Pink Crush. However, it so happens, Chrissi and I did a book swap earlier in the year so she has already, a copy of Pink Crush. Her second copy, she says, will give to someone as a gift.
Well done Chrissi!!!

  2. Thank you, Gillena. This was actually the first kukai I ever entered! :) It was great fun to participate, and I'm glad the other poets responded favorably to my haiku. There were some really thoughtful responses to the theme! It's interesting to see the different interpretations. Thank you for holding the kukai! Kat

  5. Didn't know the haiku had returned. Anyway, I bought my own copy of the book a while back. Here's one that's too late for the kukai, but OK for the season
