Autumn Meeting of the Red Dragonflies (akatombo)

The autumn meeting of the Red Dragonflies was held on Saturday, 13th March at
Barbara Fisher’s home in Mosman. Vanessa Proctor led members Beverley George,
Lesley Walter, Cynthia Rowe, Dawn Bruce and Barbara Fisher in a stimulating
series of haiku exercises. One particularly challenging exercise was to write an autumn
haiku without using the word ‘autumn’, while anonymous contributions to the haiku
bowl provoked the usual interest and hilarity.

Vanessa also presented everyone with an attractively produced chap-book of haiku
selected from work inspired by the group’s ginko at Pearl Beach last December.
