The XIV Calico Cat Haiku Contest

I entered the Calico Cat haiku contest for the first time last week as it was in honour of the late Hortensia Anderson. The results are now out and I'm very happy to see that I have been awarded an Honorable Mention for:

shooting star
I fold another
origami heart

Congratulations to the winner Sanjuktaa, who also took first place in the Haiku My Photo Challenge that I judged last month. You can view all the award winners and the write up here. A big thank you to Origa for running this wonderful competition.


  1. Thanks, Kirsten! And i liked your haiku, though i didn't comment on the contest page as i didn't want to single out any one.Actually i am lucky to have been chosen for the 1st place by Origa, as there were so many wonderful entries!

  2. You're welcome :)
    Yes, so many good haiku! A hard one to judge, I'm sure.
