Another Great Haiku Event at the Pacific Asia Museum

On Saturday, the Southern California Haiku Study Group hosted David Lanoue and Luce Pelletier for a fantastic afternoon of haiku that stretched late into the evening. Instead of our customary "Blue Room" meeting, the Pacific Asia Museum generously allowed us to use the auditorium, which turned out to be a very good thing since we had almost forty people show up, including San Francisco poet Fay Aoyagi, who flew down for the day.

Afterwards, about 20 people followed me home for Thai Food, some hanging around to talk haiku into the wee hours of the morning.
