The haiku, which originated in Japan almost 400 years ago, has become the most popular poetry form in the world! Haiku help us connect more deeply to the natural world, the seasons, and the cycles of the year, and can provide solace during difficult times. In this on-line class, we will learn a bit about the key elements of haiku and then celebrate each of the seasons by reading seasonal haiku together. Using a writing prompt, we will also try our hand at writing some haiku poems. Everyone is welcome to this fun and supportive workshop, beginners and folks who have written haiku before.
