Haiku in Nature

Haiku in Nature

Date(s) - May 4, 2024
10:30 am - 12:00 pm


Haiku, a short form of Japanese poetry, lets the writer convey a direct and personal connection with nature.  Writing haiku can deepen our experience of the natural world.  Using a simple written formula, anyone can write haiku!  This class introduces participants to classical haiku poetry, and guides them to write their own haiku poems while spending time in nature.  Participants will have the opportunity to share what they’ve written with the group if they choose to do so.  Haiku themes often focus on seasonal changes.  Come be inspired by the changes of Spring to write your own haiku!  Participants should bring their own writing supplies (notebook, journal, pen, etc).

  • Registration is required and limited
