Competition Corner (4): Kukai Results ~ Rainbow

Rainbow over Mumbles, Swansea, Wales, UK

My Haiku below was voted 7th in the 3rd International Kukai on Rita Odeh's Catching the Moment site. The kigo was 'rainbow'. There were 145 haiku from 59 haijin, representing 16 countries.

 7th Place:

a dark day–
my spirit restored
by a rainbow

If you would like to take part in the FOURTH INTERNATIONAL KUKAI, you will find details here. According to the Haiku World site, 'a kukai is a peered review poetry contest. A topic is assigned by the secretary, and all poets submit their poems on that topic to the secretary. An 'anonymized' list is then distributed to all participating poets and they are invited to vote. Votes are returned anonymously to the secretary who tallies the votes and re-sends the poems to the participants, this time with names and points revealed.'
