Haiku Meets Urban Sketching

Last Thursday I had a meeting at Mount Herman Cemetery to plan an interaction between our sketching group and a haiku writing group.  We’re planning a somewhat unique urban sketching event where we sketchers will meet at the cemetery and be teamed up with one or more haikuistes (is that a word?) and they will glean their inspiration from what, where or how we’re sketching.  I think it’s going to be a lot of fun and we’ll get to meet some creative people.

I got to the cemetery a bit early, though and I passed the time drawing a cemetery scene, though I had to cut it short because I ran out of time.  This was where I ended up.  I wonder if it could inspire a haiku poem (grin).

    I hope you’ll continue to report on this project, which is definitely unique and sounds interesting! Heck, their short poems might make you sketch faster! 😉

    • Of course I’ll talk about the haiku event when it occurs. Don’t hold your breathe, though. Because the group had already planned a couple trips, and people tend to take vacations in July and August, we’ve scheduled the event for Sept 5th. This should be a great time of year for sketching in the forest that is the Mt Herman cemetery.
