Congratulations!

If you are near one of their centers, I'm hoping they have more of the haiku in their newspaper?

warm regards,

Alan

Argh argh and double argh! What a mess! I withdrew "rain mixed with snow" from the competition prior to the completion of judging and there it is, posted. Drat. That first line I inadvertently borrowed from another haiku - I rewrote the poem to fix that and I don't want this version floating around. I have a whole email thread with the contest organizer about this and they knew that I withdrew it. Argh!
