Whoops. I'm the worst blogger ever, I was supposed to announce the winner of my Haiku competition a week ago - sorry about that! I've had a hard time picking my favourite Haiku, that's for sure - what a torture - they are all so great!
But, without further ado, the winner is Rachael, with her sweet little poem about interspecies friendship:
sleek red fox moonlight flanked by a large coal black cat there in my dark garden
Congratulations Rachael! I really hope you like your bracelet!
But I couldn't help myself...I couldn't stop at just one Haiku...they were all so amazing... So I have chosen a couple of honourable mentions & have a little prize for each of them which you can see below - these little Folk Like Us pendants (they will also be available once I launch my shop in a few weeks' time). Honestly, I wish everyone who entered could win, but I don't want to send myself bankrupt bestowing prizes willy-nilly! So, I shall restrict myself to just the two extras & will be sending a pendant to Suki, for her rather dark & moody, Film Noir-esque poem:
Autumn nights grow cold A fox comes to the city A strange cry is heard
And a pendant to bryssy for so perfectly capturing the image of a little fox gambling about on a cheery autumn day:
cracking leaves lay under padded trixter paws cool breezes blowing
Thank you everyone for entering - that was so much fun! :)
