It was announced recently that one of my haiku received a merit award in the first Montenegrin Haiku Festival Competition – Nature in My Eye.

My poem was one of 20 haiku named among the winners in the competition, in which 167 authors from 31 countries entered a total of 835 poems.  I am honored and humbled to be in the company of some great haikuists, whose work I look forward to reading in the festival anthology.

The festival will take place August 25-27 in beautiful Montenegro.

Congratulations to all of the winners, and my sincere gratitude to the contest judges.
