In May of 2008, the Port Townsend haiku group was our guest in Bellevue for a joint meeting with the Seattle-area members of Haiku Northwest. Here we are enjoying a picnic lunch together at the Bellevue Botanical Garden after spending the morning enjoying the garden.
Doris Thurston tells the history of the Port Townsend haiku group.
Ida Frielinger, Terran Campbell, Angela Terry, and Marilyn Sandall.
Karma Tenzing Wangchuk, Hellen Russell, and Alice Frampton.
The table shows examples of nearly all of the publications from Charles Trumbull's guide to haiku journals (see http://www.hsa-haiku.org/archives/ann-pubs.htm). Michael Dylan Welch brought all these publications and copies of Charlie's guide for a discussion and overview of places to publish one's haiku.
Looking at photos and books for sale, and checking out the snacks!
Haiku Northwest members gathered at Center House Theatre for our performance of haiku and music at the 2008 Folklife Festival.
Our haiku performance focused on sound- and music-related haiku in three sections. Readers were Michael Dylan Welch, Marilyn Sandall, William Scott Galasso, and Connie Hutchison.
This picture is out of order (not sure how to move it), but we gathered for lunch together after our performance.
Providing musical accompaniment on guitar was Dejah Leger, who also applied to get our performance on the Folklife program—thanks Dejah!
KUOW radio, the local NPR affiliate, and one of Seattle's most listened-to stations, sponsored the stage where we had our performance.
