“Learn about the pine, from the pine.” This advice about writing haiku from Haiku Master Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), is true for us today. We will learn about Basho: his life, times and influence as the originator of this poetry form. Basho reveals to us the haiku moment: the direct, immediate experience of the natural world in three short lines. After reading many of Basho's haiku, we will try our hands at writing haiku using easy and fun writing prompts. Soon you will be seeing haiku moments everywhere. Participants will receive a small field notebook and a haiku chapbook by the instructor. All are invited to this fun, supportive course. Instructor, Jeanne Martin
