Report on Bindii meeting of 1 June 2019

Four members of Bindii (Julia Wakefield, Lynette Arden, Dawn Colsey and Athena Zaknic) met at the Box Factory in Regent St Adelaide at 12.30 pm to share, write and discuss haiku.

Apologies were received from Maeve Archibald, Sara Sims, Margaret Fensom and Michelle Slattery.

Julia Wakefield had selected haiku from two anthologies and asked members to select their favourites. Members spoke about haiku they particularly liked. Lynette Arden also spoke about several published haiku she had selected, which she thought demonstrated depth and resonance.

Following this, members wrote haiku stimulated by the topic ‘sitting’, using as stimulation verses from a rengay Julia had chosen. These haiku were shared on the whiteboard.

Owing to the small attendance at regular meetings, some changes are being contemplated.

Julia Wakefield will seek members’ ideas so we can decide what format the group wishes to follow in the future, about places, dates and times of meetings.

The meeting   concluded at 2.30 pm.
