AHS Autumn Equinox Haiku String 2019

AHS invites you to share with us your original haiku about City Life. This is a wide-ranging topic. We invite you to explore a multiplicity of ideas in the String without using the words ‘city life’.

The haiku will be linked by the subject City Life. It is not necessary for each haiku to relate to the one before it.

Haiku @ The Oaks, Canberra

Tuesday 19 March 2019

Although only a month since we last gathered beneath the trees for a cuppa, there was so much to talk about that at first, we had trouble restraining ourselves to just one conversation! All of us were there again — Glenys Ferguson, Gregory Piko, Kathy Kituai, Hazel Hall, Marietta McGregor and Jan Dobb. And there again, with their lively conversations, were the magpies and cockatoos.

ILLAWONG HAIKU GROUP AUTUMN MEETING

Tuesday 19th March 2019

It is sometimes said that bigger is better but at our first meeting for 2019 it must be said that is not always the case. While unfortunately three of our members Barbara, Gavin and Lana were unable to attend it allowed our small group to spend more time on all things ‘haiku’.

It was originally planned that our meeting be held outdoors at Burnum Burnum Sanctuary, Woronora. However, due to the unpredictable weather it was decided to meet at the very pleasant alternative Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre at Gymea.

Red Dragonflies’ Autumn Meeting, 2019

Our first meeting this year was hosted by Cynthia Rowe on Saturday 2nd March. Others present were Barbara Fisher, Dawn  Bruce, Vanessa Proctor and Willem Tibben.

Vanessa had forwarded the exercises beforehand so everyone came well armed with work.

The most testing exercise was  to write a haiku about writing poetry (a subject dear to all poets) and for another we had to choose a favorite haiku and then say why we liked it.
