SOFO: *Being in the Moment, Flowing with the Seasons—How to Write a Haiku Poem: Children 8+

Sunday, June 23, 2019

11:00 am

In this program for children ages 8 and older, Mankh will introduce
haiku as a way of life, as well as a literary form. He will include a
brief history and examples of this shortest poetic form—from traditional
to modern adaptations. And, most importantly, he will take the children
outdoors in the field behind the museum and have them use all their
senses to absorb the natural world around them on this particular day,
at this particular time of day. After a while outdoors, the children
will come indoors to experiment writing haiku poems which then can be
read aloud and discussed.
