A haiku of hope

I have just received this certificate from the Indian Kukai organisers featuring my haiku that was placed fourth in their 32nd kukai  (a peer-judged, poetry competition) The theme was hope, which we could all be doing with at the minute. For me, the white butterfly represents transformation and change – hopefully for the better.

Well done to Ed Bremson whose haiku was placed first; I was delighted as I was in total agreement, having given his haiku my top vote!

Congratulations to all who entered. Here are the results 🙂

    Congratulations! The Butterfly is the symbol adopted by Lupus sufferers and others too . It can be used to represent a beautiful but fragile life.

    • Do you know I’ve been thinking about that today after reading your beautiful words about Rachel, Marie. I suddenly thought of the little white butterfly pin you sent me and wondered what it represented. “A beautiful but fragile life” is very moving. I am always going to think of this as a haiku sent by Rachel!
