This is a short note to say that tomorrow will be the last day to submit an appreciation for a loved one, with a chance to earn them a complimentary 12-candle gift subscription.
🖊️🤗 Submit an appreciation here 🤗🖊️ [deadline November 12]
We will send a complimentary Scent-to-Home for all valid submissions AND several finalists will also receive complimentary full-size candles (see rules in the link above).
It’s been wonderful seeing your haikus roll in over the past several days. The range of nominees and approaches is heartwarming and I can’t wait to share the stories back with you.
In the event that you are feeling bashful about your haiku skills, I am sharing below a haiku I wrote for my dear childhood cat, named “Fish”.
Ode to Fish 🐈
Your trembling whiskers,
Thick pouch, deafening miaow
Will be remembered.
Note that while this ode purr-fectly* fulfills our haiku syllable requirements, it does not fulfill the criteria of being about a living human.
Once again, November 12 is the last day for submitting appreciations, which you can do here.
— Harry from Keap, Steward-Owner
* There was intense debate whether “miaow” (more commonly spelled “meow”) was one or two syllables. I begrudgingly had to concede it is officially two and edit my poem as a result.
