Japanese Garden Ginku Walk

Today, Sunday, February 1, 2009, I attended the Southern California Haiku Study Group (SCHSG) for a Ginku walk and haiku workshop at the Japanese Garden in California State University, Long Beach. Since I was late, Chizuru (above) graciously guided me where the meeting was.

end of winter
the glimpse of spring
in her smile
