White Pebbles Spring Meeting

September 2021

To celebrate spring and with New South Wales still in lockdown, White Pebbles members enjoyed an unhurried email meeting over three days.

Our facilitator Beverley George organised and circulated a worksheet prior to the meeting date. The word prompts reflected our ‘stay-at-home’ status, included heavy rain, first sign of Spring, sparked by others, night sky and free choice. 

Each member was invited to write one or more haiku to each prompt.

The poems were emailed to all members for suggestions.

There was a feast of poems to enjoy, and considered and thoughtful comments were circulated by email over the next few days with all nine members; Beverley George, Samantha Sirimanne Hyde, Kent Robinson, Colleen Keating, Gail Hennessy, Maire Glacken, Verna Rieschild, Gwen Bitti, and Marilyn Humbert participating.

Maire Glacken shared her take on life with Covid restrictions.

White Pebbles continues to thrive with the encouragement and support of every member even though our meetings at Gosford/Edogawa Gardens have been curtailed by Covid.
