My haiku about cherry blossoms has been chosen as a honorable mention in the BC category of the 2012 Haiku Invitational (hosted by the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival). This is my first time entering a haiku for a contest, so I’m very grateful for this honor.

My haiku:

blossoms scatter in the storm . . .

his withered hands catch

a cherry petal wish
