Meet Kyra McNally Albers: 2018's Haiku Soap Winner
Once again, we are publishing the winner of our annual haiku contest onto our soap. In year’s past, we have printed the poem on every bar we sell, but due to increasing number of bars that move trough our store, this has become impractical.
This year, we have moved to having a specialized soap for the winner. We are offering our Haiku Bar with scents of cranberry and fig. It is currently a light rose color with golden swirl, but look for that color to darken to a deeper red and cappuccino swirl in future renditions.
We will carry this soap until July 31, at which time we will start our poetry cycle anew.
As with every winner, when we announce our publication release, we like to reach out and get the winner’s perspective on the contest, on writing, and on being published on a bar of soap. Really, though, we just want to put a face to the winner. So, without further ado, here is our winner, Kyra McNally Albers.
Her winning poem is as follows:
The dewdrops have a cherry scent
On the crooked tree branch
Where you used to sit
