The December meeting had a holiday feel as friends gathered to say goodbye to 2009 with haiku and sweet treats. In attendance were Bob, Karel, TJ, Carolyn, Nicholas, David and Johnette. Emma, Juliet, Sakuo, Emiko, Koubushin and Kazuyoshi sent poems to be read at the meeting in their absence.
The three-word haiku assignment was a huge success and even prompted some to write three-syllable haiku and three-letter haiku! Whoa! Now that's a challenge!
Sushi dinner at Kyoto was enjoyed after the meeting.
