NOHS Monthly Meeting Notes - November 2009

Following an enjoyable afternoon of haiku reading at the Maple Leaf Bar Poetry Reading on Sunday, the November meeting of the NOHS on Monday night went very well. In attendance were Bob, Juliet, Nicholas, David, Ed, Emma, Johnette, Karel and T. J. Karel shared some lizard-ku, Juliet read some casino-ku, Nicholas had some urban life-ku, Emma offered moon-ku, Bob had some haiku from a recent reunion he attended, and David and Johnette offered some slice of life haiku. The end of the meeting was reserved for a discussion about how to submit haiku for publication consideration to haiku journals.

A first for our group, an assignment of writing a three word, three line haiku to share at the December meeting was given.

Until the next meeting, happy haikuing!

Haiku Walk - October 2009

Here are some photos from our labyrinth haiku walk in October at Audubon Park. Thanks to Laura for providing the labyrinth as a muse for haiku writing!

...and a fun time was had by all!

NOHS at Japan Fest 2009

The New Orleans Haiku Society will host an exhibit table at the Japan Fest at the New Orleans Museum of Art, in City Park, One Collins C. Diboll Circle, City Park, New Orleans, Louisiana 70124, USA. Come out for a cultural immersion experience and visit our table where you will be able to write your own haiku on the spot using our haiku magnet boards, participate in Festival day renga game and learn more about haiku and our group.

The festival is always a treat; a day filled with taiko drumming, a tea ceremony, origami, live performances, the game of Go, sushi and much more. We hope to see you there!
