Inaugural Meeting of Ozku

A poetry group dedicated to the study of haiku

The inaugural meeting of the newly formed ozku poets met at haijin Dawn Bruce’s home in St. Leonards on January 20th.
The group of six enthusiastic members will meet each month to discuss haiku, its history, traditions and various forms, as well as to workshop their own haiku. Present were Dawn Bruce, Beatrice Yell, Margaret Grace, Joyce Christie and Joanne Watcyn-Jones. Geoff Lucas sent his apologies.

The following haiku, by Joyce Christie, was inspired by the exercise – write a ‘summer’ haiku:
kangaroos bound
across blocked roads
