What a blessing our Yuki Teikei Haiku Retreats at Asilomar have been!
Several days to eat, sleep, breathe, talk and think haiku!
During the 1992 Retreat with Robert Hass, Margaret Chula and Jerry Ball confer.
I ask directions
he asks if I am a priest
in the summer dusk
on a hill of weeds
a farmer and a whetstone
sharpening their scythe
Both are from his book Summer in Italy, 1996.
