Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival - a soup winner!


Blog Posted:9/27/2013 3:20:00 PM
For those of you not around a few months ago, I hosted a cherry blossom haiku contest and encouraged all entrants to submit their haiku to the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, a contest held once a year.

Well one of our own soupers, Andrea Deitrich, received an Honorable Mention in this contest! So a big CONGRATS to Andrea for her poem:

sipping saki
under the sakura tree…
a haiku blossoms

    wow, Susan, this is sure a surprise your announcing this!! I want to thank YOU for drawing my attention to that contest. It would never have entered my mind to try such a thing if it had not been for your fun contest and your encouragement when I had problems submitting my poem into that contest. You are such a sweetie!!!

    WWWAAAAAAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! RIGHT ON! Andrea, just awesome, hon! No wonder it won.. and as you'd say, THAT is the way it is done. The AHA is delightful. HEY SUSAN, what a sweetie you are to inspire this, redirect your contestants and then showcase the winner. You're just a gem... and there you go, folks. Soup has some major talent. Hugs and Kudos from Cyndi (er... feeling still somewhat Cyn-ister...but trying to unruffled my feathers... dang dark things got all tangled in things like ideology and passion. Dang. LOL)
