The Dance of Haiku
I began to ponder the connections between dance and poetry, and since each dance segment was so short—just enough time, to my untrained eye, for each couple to maybe make it around the dance floor once, showing their skill to the judges—that I thought specifically of haiku and dance. One little waltz of words, a quick-step of image, a tango of emotion...I came home inspired.
Thank goodness I took a lot of blurry photos, because I realized there were haiga here, in which I could try to partner the images and poems and keep with me a little of the magic of that day.

Thanks to Noelle MK and all the dancers.
