Birthday Celebrations!

   Instead of coming up with my own contest for my birthday, I decided to celebrate with three poets who are doing something special at their own blogs. 
     There's not a lot of time left so check out the links as soon as you can. I promise that you won't regret it. You'll also enjoy reading the submissions of other participants.

1) Moon Tanka with Margaret Dornaus - You have until tomorrow to get a chance to win a copy of Modern Japanese Tanka. 
2) Birthday Renku with Cara Holman - July 23 is the last day to join her in creating an on-line renku.
3) The Siloh Tanka Contest with Kirsten Cliff - July 24 is the last day for your chance to win 26 Tanka Films (Dvd) by Richard von Sturmer.     

     In the following days, I'll be sharing my entries here. It's definitely not as good as the others, but they're special to me. Honestly, I didn't join to win. I just wanted to create something for them for bringing so much joy in the haiku community.
     To all the July birthday celebrants, I wish you all the wonderful things that your heart desires and may you have many more productive years of writing!

  2. Thanks for letting people know about my contest! :)

    I'm really enjoying your poetry, Chrissi. It has a real depth and genuineness to it. You are a fresh new voice and I'm very happy to see you joining in around the on-line haiku community. Maybe we can collaborate in some haiga some day soon...
