Quendryth’s prize-winning entry from the Kasumakura Haiku Competition reads as follows:

all eyes
wide open
aquarium

The 45th poem to be featured in the pathway at Katikati in New Zealand, Ron’s haiku reads:

outdoor concert
the toddler asleep
kicking stars

Congratulations to both Quendryth Young and Ron C. Moss for each having their work in haiku recognised in these ways during the month of January.
