I am so proud of my cousin, Pat Daharsh, who has won another First Place for haiku. This time it was the NC Poetry Society, Griffin-Farlow Haiku contest.

1st place: Patricia Daharsh, [“partial eclipse”]
2nd place: Crystal Simone Smith, [“plantation tour”]
3rd place: Chen-ou Liu, [“thinking of mom”]  

The following is the email Pat sent me.
North Carolina Poetry Society has announced winners in their annual Griffin-Farlow Haiku contest. My entry took First Place (publication in Pinesong and a cash prize),

Pat has been writing and winning haiku contests for some years now. Congrats, Pat.
Keep writing and winning.

Sorry I am so late posting this announcement. I thought it had come up back in the spring.
