Origa's Calico Cat contest

origa has concluded her "Calico Cat Haiku Contest," which has been running on her blog in Russian and English.

I'm totally impressed with the number of entries she managed to garner for a blog contest...she had 94 entries by 47 poets from 15 countries!!!

Kirsty Karkow ended up winning first place, Origa's sumi painting on rice paper of pansies and a bee. Paul Conneally from the UK (an old one-time rengay parter of mine) won second place. Third place was split between poets from Slovenia, Russia, and the United States.

One of my haiku was an honorable mention:

розовая нежность
кожи малыша --
первая прививка

- Deborah P Kolodji (tr Origa)

That's how it looks in Russian! Cool, huh? In English:

pink softness
of a baby’s skin --
first immunization

- Deborah P Kolodji

(I was trying to link to and shift away from Origa's pansy/bee painting - I may have linked too far astray to be a serious contender).
