The Kukai - a haiku contest, where each person submits a haiku, and then, becomes a judge. When all the poems are compiled in a list, the contestants comment, vote, and give scores to poems of their choice. One cannot comment on, nor vote for one’s own poem. At the end of the voting process winners emerge, the selection based on votes by the kukai’s contestants.

Dear haiku friends the first ever Caribbean Kigo Kukai was posted in 2009 with a kigo Lent. That was nine years ago. Back then CKK was a monthly event. In February 2015 our last kukai was announced. Following this, requests for continuation flooded in and Special Events Kukai were then started.
I now wish in the spirit of looking back, and of continuation to have an Anniversary Kukai during the Season of Lent every year.
Please join me in our first anniversary-celebration kukai which will reflect our first ever kigo Lent, but our THEME for this kukai will be INTROSPECTION. This means our haiku will be about introspection, but we do not absolutely have to use the word in our haiku.
