Haiku in the Woods
Celebrate National Poetry Month by learning to write and appreciate haiku poetry with Michael Dylan Welch, vice president of the Haiku Society of America. Please join us on April 14, 2012 for this free presentation and guided nature walk to learn haiku poetry. PowerPoint presentation, handouts, writing exercises, and more -- learn about kigo (season words), kireji (dividing the poem into two juxtaposed parts) and shasei (images from the five senses). Adults and families welcome, including teachers interested in teaching haiku in their classrooms. This event is sponsored by the Sammamish Arts Commission and is co-hosted by Sammamish Walks.
