The Haiku Hike
Margaret Mahy Family Playground, Saturday August 27, 1.30pm
For hundreds of years Japanese haiku consisted of three lines of verse containing 17 syllables (5+7+5 syllables per line). Doc Drumheller invented the Haiku Hike, to show how traditional Japanese haiku walks or ginko can become more relevant in the 21st Century. Join Doc, an internationally award winning haiku poet, on a hike through the Margaret Mahy Family Playground! Learn to carefully observe your surroundings, open your imagination, and discover the magic of words.
