Caravan to Pasadena - 7/17

The Southern California haiku Study Group meets every 3rd Saturday of the month at the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena

Courtyard at the Pacific Asia Museum, Pasadena, CA

The next meeting will be Saturday July 17, 2010, featuring guest speaker David Lanoue from Xavier University in New Orleans. Professor Lanoue is a well-known haiku scholar and noted translator of Issa. []

 As always, there will be a read-around of poems to start the meeting, either your own or some you've recently read that you admire. We will also be gathering regional kigo (season words, phrases) for the month of July. Think about what is in bloom, what events are happening that are unique to the month of July, what patterns of the sky and weather characterize this month in Southern California. A few examples: Independence Day, jellyfish, Dog Star, grapefruit, hibiscus.

If you would like to caravan from San Diego to the meeting, please contact Billie at We will leave Saturday by 9:30 a.m., return around 9:00 p.m.
