September 15, 2007 - Workshop and Kukai

Water Lilies, Pacific Asia Museum Courtyard

There was another wedding at the Pacific Asia Museum and members of the Southern California Haiku Study Group met in the Volunteer Room. Present were Peggy Hehman-Smith, Phyllis Collins, Lindy Hill, Pauli Dutton, Dick Dutton, Kathy Wilson, Debbie Kolodji, Violet, Wendy Wright, and Janis.

We discussed the season, lamenting summer's end with cooler nights, but enjoying blooming morning glory vines and the sound of crickets.

Some sample haiku from the kukai:

is it the same cricket
in the rafters tonight?
old friend

- Lindy Hill

dying morning glory vine
slowly releases
the garden gate

- Peggy Hehman-Smith

alone in the gallery
where we sang --
distant drums

- Kath Abela Wilson
