BINDII MEETING 5 JUNE 2010 report to HaikuOz

Present: Marilyn Linn, Margaret Dingle (Fensom), Lyn Arden, Alex Ask, Athena Zaknic, Maeve Archibald
Apologies: Alain and Elsa Rozanes, Pam Brow.

Alex Ask presented a PowerPoint presentation of his haiga. Alex’s haiga were much admired by members and should give the rest of us some inspiration, now we have seen what can be achieved.

The rest of the meeting was devoted to a kukai (sharing of haiku by members, who read their favourites after the contributions had been made anonymous).

One of the haiku from the kukai:

sticks of mist
folding winter sunlight
she flaps her fan

Maeve Archibald

The meeting concluded with lunch at around 12.30. A number of members stayed to attend the 2 pm haiku/haibun workshop run by Martina Taeker.

The next Bindii meeting will be at 10.30 am Saturday 3 July at the Box Factory. We plan to spend the meeting discussing tanka and possibly writing tanka.
