On a sunny afternoon 8 haiku enthusiasts from the Mari Warabiny Haiku Group met at the Art Gallery of WA, in the vibrant Perth Cultural Centre, for a Spring ginko. The Art Gallery of WA provided the Manhattan Meeting Room where our Ginko leader (Shuzai) the esteemed haiku Poet, Maureen Sexton welcomed us. Maureen provided a handout and verbal instructions on how to conduct a Spring Ginko.
The Mari Warabiny Haiku Group will hold a Spring Haiku Ginko on Sunday, 26 October, 2014, commencing at 1.00 pm, at the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth Cultural Centre, James Street, Perth.
The Mari Warabiny Haiku Group is a group of haiku enthusiasts based in WA, but open to all no matter where you live, who give feedback on each others’ haiku by email, share information about haiku and related forms, and events in WA. We all recognise the need to critique our haiku, no matter how experienced or inexperienced we are.

Last Saturday I was joined by Rose Van Son, Meryl Manoy and Liz Nicholls for a Mari Warabiny Haiku Group ginko in Supreme Court Gardens. Perth is blessed to have had city planners with the foresight to include botanical gardens as part of the cityscape. Supreme Court Gardens, despite humble beginnings as a paddock, holds many secrets that reveal themselves to those with eyes to see and minds to capture:
