Haiku Walk - Insectarium

The NOHS is hosting a haiku walk at the new Insectarium in New Orleans on August 24, 2008 at 1:00 p.m. We will meet inside the Insectarium in the lobby at 1:00, begin the haiku walk at 1:15 and meet back in the lobby at an agreed upon time (usually two hours later). At that time we will find a quiet place to share the poems we have written. Please feel free to join us as we get buggy about haiku.

July 2008 Meeting Notes

Ahhh, summer in New Orleans! The heat, the soupy air...inside the Library! Our July meeting was held in our regular meeting space, the Latter Library, except on this particular evening the air-conditioning was broken!!!! Did I mention it is JULY in New Orleans??? Balmy, no! Tepid, no! Steamy, yes! Hot, you betcha! But, being the troopers we are, we held the meeting anyway with the slow hum of a small box fan. In attendance were Juliet, Karel, Michael, David and Johnette. Some sizzling haiku were read by all and the ensemble cooled off at Kyoto Restaurant for a nice sushi dinner. Here is one of the poems read by Juliet that evening:

explosions of color
4th of July
her tie dye dress
