Egrets Reading

Shiki Monthly Kukai Deadline this Saturday

The deadline for the Shiki Monthly Kukai is this coming Saturday, December 9th at noon EST.

The kigo is “starry night”

starry night --
the talk of planets
we’ll never visit

The free format kukai is “memories” – i.e. write a haiku about a memory (you do not need to use the word “memories” in your haiku.

poinsettias --
the lacquered pin
Grandma wore

(My haiku here are examples I just wrote and are not the haiku I am actually planning to enter.)

Send your haiku to with the words “kigo entry” or “free format entry” in the subject of your e-mail to enter.

Good luck!
