Winners Announced For The Basho Book Contest

These are the lovely haiku submitted for the chance to win “Basho: The Complete Haiku” sent to me by Kodansha International:

violent downpour
quickly replaced by the sun
rain in the desert
leaves gently falling
a crisp coolness to the air
fall is here again
the nights are cooler
the leaves have lost their lustre
autumn is coming

and

chilly autumn rain
curled up with a good book
adventure beckons
letters on a door
two hearts forever entwined
by cobwebs and dust

Because I am entranced by each I have decided to award each submission a prize. By random drawing, the copy of Basho goes to…

Terri B!

A magnetic poetry kit goes to…

Tanabata!

Two cranes that I folded, because they are an international symbol of peace and love, go to…

Robin and…


3M!


So, ladies, please send me your addresses at bellezza.mjs@gmail.com, and I will send you your prizes. Thanks for playing!

  1. Smilngsal, it was a fun contest. It's not too late to join in the Japanese Literature Challenge if you want. Three books read by January 30. Go to Japlitchallenge2.blogspot.com to check out the Review Site if you'd like.Carl, I liked that they are GINKGO leaves, too. You know, ginkgo…Japan…haiku. Sort of a theme, there. 😉
