Tasty kukai!

E diplomaThanks to inspiration from my daughter, I’m flying the flag for Northern Ireland in the latest European Quarterly Kukai.

A kukai is a haiku event in which participants write to a theme provided by the organiser, often a kigo, or ‘season word’.

After the deadline, each participant receives an anonymous list of entries and invited to vote for their favourite poems. When the results have been tallied, everyone receives an email revealing the identity of all the participants and the number of votes received for each haiku.

It’s really just for fun, but I love reading all the different interpretations of the same topic from poets around the world. This quarter, the theme was ‘food’ and my entry was inspired by my daughter Taryn’s early baking skills. 🙂
