This year we decided to run a Haiku competition. The Haiku had to be written on the second day of the weekend, Saturday 26th August, and dropped into a box in the Temenos garden. Approximately 100 entries were received, and Hugh Hodge was given the task of identifying a winning entry, which would receive a cash prize of R1000.
This was the winner, written by Graham Dukas.
The heart remains connected
As we drift alone
Congratulations, Graham! When he was informed, Graham immediately donated his prize back to the event! A big thank you from us! Your generosity will see us able to assist another deserving cause in McGregor.
Hugh also identified two other Haiku which he commended highly.

Weer heel sal wees nie

The Baviaans, I came back
With an open soul
