The special mentions for the Ligo Haibun challenge held on 29th April are:
Sarah Ann Hall: A writer’s struggle and anticipation brought out so well in a few words. All of us can empathize with this haibun.
Peripatetic Eric: The writer brings each scene alive as you travel with the character. The haiku are brilliant.
KZ: Obstinacy is a gift, especially if you are all geared to achieve the impossible. An inspiring haibun that will lift your spirits.
