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.

Her smile is so captivating that I took her picture and wrote haiku poems for her. Maybe next time, I can request her to remove her sunglasses before I take her picture, that is, if there’s another chance.

end of winter
the glimpse of spring
in her smile

Thank you very much Shanna! That girl accompanied me from the entrance of the Garden to the meeting place without me asking for it. And she did it with that contagious smile! The poems are my expression of thanks to her.
