Looks fun! Did you do the magnolia haiku too?We must have just missed each other, as I was in Surrey recently doing my Purely Haiku Residential Course at Claridge House. ;-)Alan
Hi, Alan.I wish I had the opportunity be there learning haiku with the whole class. Need to recharge my battery again and again....WWB
David, I love this azalea haiku. As much as I like them, I have always had a hard time including their images in a poem:)
I'm afraid I always think of Steve Martin and The Man with Two Brains. ;-)Alan
Thanks for these comments. Actually Alan I'm not planning to read the magnolia one. Yea you were really close when you did the haiku course in Purley - 20 minutes away roughly.Did it go well??
Hi David,The course was in Lingfield, not too far from the racecourse, and in Claridge House, a Quakers Retreat, which serves incredible food all week.We've been doing haikai literature courses there for a few years now, always does well, great people.Here's a magnolia haiku from me as part of the Japan Art Auction Aid event: weblinkall my very best,Alan
Vida I have spent years looking at these shameless flowers - so guady and totally out of place in our restrained English landscaped spring gardens - except for the short bursts of native blossom. I have never written about azaleas before. But then a month ago they seemed to strike me like a lightening bolt unasked for.May the lightening strike of inspiration continue to strike you Vida.
Alan your haiku is beautiful and disturbing. It gives us a different perspective on this strange spring.
Hi David,How do you mean by disturbing?I could understand if you meant the rapeseed gendai one which is on this site.Just curious. ;-)Alan
