Irish Haiku Anthology Launch

Poetry Ireland, in association with Doghouse Books and the Irish Haiku Society, presents the launch of Bamboo Dreams, an anthology of haiku poetry from Ireland, edited by Anatoly Kudryavitsky.

The launch takes place on Tuesday, 25 September 2012 at 6.30pm in the Unitarian Church, 112 St Stephen’s Green West, Dublin 2.

The anthology will be launched by Mr. Jimmy Deenihan T.D., Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, and will include musical accompaniment from Junshi Murakami (Celtic harp) and Philip Horan (shakuhachi bamboo flute).

Admission to this event is free, refreshments will be provided. Anatoly pictured above reading at the Doghouse Reading in Siamsa in Tralee earlier this year.

I don't write many haiku. Below is my attempt for the LitLab Cavan Fleadh Haiku Beermats 2010. No seasonal reference and there was disagreement as to the number of syllables in the final line - I maintained that west of Ireland pronunciation makes diddly a three-syllable word.
