National Poetry Month

National Poetry Month, April 2010

What a better way to celebrate the waning week of National Poetry Month than going out and communing with nature and writing poems inspired by the experience. That’s what a small group of So. Calif. haiku poets did today, April 24 when we took a haiku hike to Fish Canyon Falls in Duarte, California. While admiring the waterfalls, I asked a lady stranger sitting beside me, who dared her son to wade in the pool, to write a poem this being national poetry month. To my surprise, she did (of course after showing my haiku to her, and here is what she wrote:

the sound
of kids splashing
by the waterfull

- Sandy

Thanks Sandy even if we never cross our paths again.
