We will end as we began, on January 11, 2006,
with Dr. Akito Arima, on a visit
from Japan, writing haiku
by the Golden Gate Bridge, only this time
he is looking away from the bridge
and toward the rest of the Marin Headlands.
This brings to an end my commitment
to post every day in 2015
as a celebration of the 40th anniversary
of the Yuki Teikei Haiku Society.
It has been great fun!
I didn't manage every day, but. . .
284 posts, each with a photograph!
6112 views from many places in the world!
Lots and lots of lovely praise!
Possibilities for the future:
Just say goodbye. Sob. . .
Lest frequent, or irregular posts.
Posts on different topics,
by different members, to help you improve your writing,
Posts by guest editors from Yuki Teikei Haiku Society.
Closer coordination with our
publication, GEPPO: perhaps
reprinting the haiku chosen by menbers' votes
or challenge kigo haiku
or the selected haiku and remarks of our dojin.
I will be discussing these, and any other ideas
with the membership and officers.
Many thanks to Yukiko Tokutomi Northon for creating
an official Facebook page for
Yuki Teikei Haiku Society!
Thank you so much for you attention and praise! jhh
