April Haiku Walk
Four members of the NOHS went on a haiku walk in Algiers Point on Sunday, April 18, 2010 from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m. The "walk" included a "ride," a ferry ride across the Mississippi River from New Orleans to Algiers. In attendance were Kathleen, Juliet, David and Johnette. The quartet walked along the levee, down the Jazz Walk of Fame and through Riverfest, a festival that was going on providing a sound scape of Jazz to inspire poets. We shared our haiku and had lunch at the Dry Dock Cafe and then boarded the ferry back across the River to New Orleans. The escape from New Orleans, though not far away, provided a nice view of our beloved City. We parted ways at Decatur Street where Juliet began her journey home on foot, and Kathleen, David and Johnette took the streetcar to their respective homes. It was beautiful day to be outdoors and to write and share haiku with friends.
