Haiku Afternoon

I just spent a wonderfully enriching afternoon with the Newcastle Haiku Society, discussing the works of masters like Basho, Buson, Issa and Shiki - and Peter Mortimer :) who is never going to forgive me - punctuation-wise and I don't blame him... Nice hat, Peter :)

Thanks to Chris for inviting me along. Morden Tower is also a wonderful venu. What a privilege.

The only Haiku I ever wrote is in The Shine Journal here:
