#Haiku Happenings #5: Bill Waters haiku from his early start celebrating #IHPD!
This past Sunday, April 15th, I got a jump on International Haiku Poetry Day by attending a haiku get-together at the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed environmental preserve in Central New Jersey. The time flew by — too fast, too fast! — as we jumped from topic to topic about haiku-related things. :- )
The weather was cold, overcast, and a bit drizzly, but our spirits weren’t dampened as we walked a woodland trail in search of haiku moments to capture. The effects of wind were much in evidence in my poems:
the path of the wind
to the wind and rain . . .
shattered shagbark hickory
windy woods —
the clack and squeak
Oh, and mud, too. LOL!
surrounded by nature
Many thanks, Education Director and haiku poet Jeff Hoagland, for making this event possible! _/|_
