The Red Dragonflies met at Mosman for their Christmas get together on Saturday 9th November. We went on a short ginko around the harbour foreshore, enjoying superb views across to Sydney Heads and Watsons Bay.
Since the weather was rather warm, we soon retired for drinks to the French Café, where we began workshopping our pre-written haiku, surprised at how a topic as random as ‘chaos’ had produced such original work. Lunch had been booked at Burnt Orange, a charming café restaurant with a sweeping verandah, where we were suitably fanned by harbour breezes (but where our haiku had to be pinned down inside the sugar container). Burnt Orange boasts a great gift shop where a few of us flitted about later on a different sort of ginko, still focused on concrete images, but ones that had us drawing money from our wallets, rather than pen and paper from our pockets.
