Our October meeting was a bit special. Melody, Suzie, Yvonne, Noela, Dawn and Gayle were all able to attend along with Bernie and Peter, and we gathered at the Osprey House Environmental Centre, right alongside the North Pine River. As we tucked into a delicious morning tea provided by Bernie we heard the whistling of the ospreys along with the calls of various other water birds. The boardwalks beckoned, and while sitting in a viewing spot we were privileged to be entertained by two juvenile ospreys practising their diving from the nearby mangroves.
Gayle chose the venue as a place to inspire us and challenge our haiku abilities. We were also asked to think of subjects for future months.
November’s meeting will be the last for the year when we celebrate the year’s poetry efforts with an early Christmas lunch!
