The Mountmellick Haiku Festival

Last year Slim entered 2 haikus in the Mountmellick Haiku Festival. He finished 9th and 10th in the non-starter category. See blog post “Poet’s Corner 2”.

Since then he has learnt how to count syllables and has made some revisions.

Let’s not dwell on what might have been.
