The New Zealand Poetry Society 2013 Anthology, Given an ordinary stone, edited by Owen Bullock, was launched over the weekend in Wellington. You can order your copy here.
The anthology includes the winning poems from the NZPS International Competitions, including the Haiku Junior Section I judged, as well as other poems and haiku selected by the author from the remaining entries.
This year I won 5th Prize in the Open Haiku Section, judged by Nola Borrell, with:
pine needles cloistered
in fresh snow
This appears in the book, along with my Commended placing:
full morning moon
cows chew their way
through the fog
I look forward to receiving my copy and reading all the poems from 2013! I'm sure it will be an inspiration. :-)
