Illawong Haiku Group held their Winter meeting on Tuesday 15th June at the home of member Ros Pitt. While the weather was quite dreary outside it did not match the warm and congenial mood inside. It was lovely to welcome Rita back who we now consider a valuable member of our small but very enthusiastic group. We discussed the use of Imagery in Haiku based on a recent presentation by Joshua Gage featured on The Haiku Foundation website. Our Spring meeting will be a ginko when we will observe and gather inspiration to write haiku to each of the five types of imagery: Visual, Auditory, Tactile, Olfactory and Gustatory.
Entries have now closed for The AHS Winter Solstice Haiku String. Please enjoy the many contributions from poets worldwide.
The Australian Haiku Society welcomes contributions from haiku poets worldwide to the Winter Solstice Haiku String.
