‘Lovers and Others’ is a delightful December gathering of writers (and one drummer), hosted by Ilona Martonfi at Yellow Door in Montreal.
As the evening came to an end, visual artist and writer Verona Sorensen held out a bowl full of tiny scrolls tied with glittery gold ribbon.
They looked good enough to eat.
On each scroll was printed a haiku that had been embedded in the poem she’d read that evening.
A bowlful of haiku!
What a great idea! The perfect gift to end an evening of readings and to send one on one’s way into the dark December night!
What a lovely idea! Would love to have been there. Ilona’s Yellow Door evenings are always enjoyable, with new voices and old.
Tiny haiku scrolls would make perfect gifts for dinner or party guests too.
That’s a neat idea, Chris – haiku scrolls for party guests. I was thinking of hanging some on my Christmas (hibiscus) tree. I better start writing them!
That’s a great idea too. Better than firecrackers!
Definitely! Although a good haiku might produce firecrackers in the mind!
Brilliant! There’s a haiku in that. . .
Hahaha! (I must find how to activate the ‘like’ button!)
