Arts Lunch: National Poetry Month! Short Forms: Haiku and Sijo

April 6, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

We are starting off National Poetry Month with an interactive workshop inspired by Japanese haiku and Korean sijo. These short-form poems each represent a long tradition, influenced by Buddhism, and represent an often meditative response to a natural scene or sometimes laced with a philosophical question. We will be writing some haiku and sijo around the theme of spring.
