There are several Galleries at The Haiku Foundation.

Kindness

Yesterday I went to Mead Public Library in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  They had a nice selection of used books for sale.  I bought two poetry books, for less than a dollar.  I stopped at a restaurant on the way home.  A young  person held the door for me.

Lilacs were blooming along the roads.

Our peonies will bloom soon.

 

Sharing Haiku Lesson 2 – The Haiku Foundation Digital Library

Ellen Grace Olinger - Haiku Art Site

Jim Kacian and I completed a new lesson plan:

Sharing Haiku Lesson 2 – The Haiku Foundation Digital Library.

I will keep this post short, and hope you can look at the plan if you are interested.  It lists the 7 collections in THF Digital Library, and the lesson features a book by Ion Codrescu.  Garry Eaton is the volunteer librarian.

The Haiku Foundation is non-profit.

Thank you

We began a new series of lesson plans at The Haiku Foundation.

The first in this series is Sharing Haiku Lesson 1: Book of the Week.  I wrote the lesson, and Jim Kacian created the post.  A chapbook by Peggy Willis Lyles is featured.

How to Haiku by Jim Kacian: New Lesson Plans

Ellen Grace Olinger - Haiku Art Site

I read How to Haiku by Jim Kacian (Winchester VA: Red Moon Press, 2006), which is available in The Haiku Foundation Digital Library.  Then I wrote three lessons for the Higher Education category on the Education Resources page.

How to Haiku 1

How to Haiku 2

How to Haiku 3

Thank you to Jim Kacian for his work in publishing these lessons.
