Description: Many people believe that haiku is a simple little poem from Japan that has a certain number of syllables in each line. This is not so! The haiku is an incredibly flexible and expressive poetic form with a long history in both Japanese and American literature. Come join this two-session class in which we will read and enjoy haiku by many authors, ranging from the Japanese Masters to contemporary American poets. We will also try our hand at writing techniques to make use of this wonderful poetic form.
