National Haiku Day

December 21, 2007 is National Haiku Day! Take a haiku walk, write a poem and share haiku with friends to celebrate the event.


The New Orleans Haiku Society meets the third Monday of each month at the Latter Library, 5120 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA. and invites you to join us. We go out for sushi dinner after our meetings and regularly host haiku walks.

We have published a little book of haiku recounting our experiences during and after Hurricane Katrina. The book is titled Katrina-ku, storm poems; $7.00 plus postage. Please contact Johnette at for orders.

For more information about our group, contact the cofounders David Lanoue at or Johnette Downing at
