 Our new editor for the Southern California Haiku Study Group Anthology will present an informative talk on the 17th Century Japanese master Basho: His Life and haiku.  
old pond . . .
a frog jumps into
the sound of water
    --Matsuo Basho (trans., Jane Reichhold)

The presentation will be followed by an anonymous comment and critique session of work-in-progress. Please bring recently written haiku if you wish to participate. The goal of this session is to help you cultivate your haiku-mind, one that seeks to capture those epiphanic moments of awareness that arise from our everyday lives.
