February 17, 2007 - Workshop and Kukai

Pacific Asia Museum
Debbie Kolodji, Peggy Castro, Darrell Byrd, Kath Wilson, and Janis

President's Weekend brought us another wonderful Saturday afternoon. The turnout was small but full of creative energy. The garden courtyard has been restored to its normal tranquility producing a rush of creativity as the group wrote in the garden.

Beautiful magnolia blossoms were everywhere, inspiring one of the high scoring haiku in the kukai:

pink magnolia
the stone lion
wears a petal on his head

- Kath Wilson

Kath brought some Mayan chocolate to share, dark chocolate witha huge kick in it, inspiring another kukai haiku:

Mayan chocolate -
we forget to warn her
about the chile

- Deborah P Kolodji

All the pink blossoms in the courtyard must have had everyone in a "pink" mood, for Darrell penned the following:

cactus patch
a pink ribbon flutters on
an old wren's nest

- Darrell Byrd

Some kigo for the month include:

The Season: winter's last days, early spring
Sky and Heavens: winter sky, winter triangle
Mountains, Field, and Ocean: winter sea, first greening
Flowers and Plants: daffodils, magnolias
Birds and Animals: osprey nests, rabbit litters
Human Affairs: valentines, Ash Wednesday

The next workshop and kukai will be on March 17, 2007 at the Pacific Asia Museum at 2:00 p.m.
