Last week I posted a haiku that came in second in the March 2016 Shiki Kukai (kigo category). This week, I'm posting my March entry into the free format category. The topic was "driftwood." I actually liked this one better than the one that garnered a 2nd place ranking with 23 points, but, not many shared my opinion as it received only 7 points. Seven points is actually a good showing since there are usually over 100 haiku submitted, and each person has 6 points total to award to their favorites. There have been months I've received zero (deservedly so).
