Shiki Kukai June 2013

within this seashell--
a stillborn moon

Shiki kukai June 2013,  free format section.

It received 14 points, placed maybe 7th or 8th. Somebody actually gave it a full 3 points! Which is
reward enough, as I had loved writing this one.

Shiki Kukai December 2012

As you might have guessed, I have written nothing much in the past few months and hence have to fall back upon my Shiki kukai entries in order to post in the blog.

 The one I have dug up today is from December, 2012.
The prompt was 'departing'.

time to go...
the dragonfly clings
to a dewdrop

It got only 7 points and the  reason I remember this is because somebody liked it enough to leave behind a lovely comment!
That means a lot!
