Naia is in the foreground of this informal glimpse
of the 2012 Retreat at Asilomar. I think this is the same renku party
that Alan Pizzarelli is shown leading in a recent photo on this blog.
Joseph Robello is at the right
and that's the indefatigable haijin Deborah Kolodji in the center.
I went looking for this photo because Naia's haiku below
was the Daily Haiku on Charlotte di Gregorio's Writer's Blog today! jhh
songbird . . .
even the crow in the next tree
