“A tiny poem filled with a love of nature”—that’s how American haiku master George Marsh describes haiku. Every haiku contains a kilo, a
reference to the season of the year, and in this Spring Poetry Workshop participants will read and write and share haikus referencing spring. The focus
will be upon the "haiku moment," the abstract truth pointed to by a concrete observation of nature. Poet Mar Ka, author of the recently released collection
Be-hooved, is currently working on a haiku and prose collection in the tradition of 17th century Japanese haiku master Basho's haibun travel
journals, documenting and reflecting upon a float down Alaska's Noatak River. Participants will be encouraged to explore the haibun form as well.
