It was a pleasure to judge the 2012 Bernard Lionel Einbond Renku Competition. Renku’s dynamism is in its variety—both in its topics and linking—and we enjoyed examining the variety of both in each entry.
However, one renku stood out, so our congratulations go to “Stolen Pearls,” a winter kasen by Ron C. Moss, Paul W. MacNeil, Matthew Paul, and Ferris Gilli.
