Folklives #18: Haiku Northwest
Monday, Jan 28, 2008
This episode features the work of Northwest haiku poets, performed live at the 2005 Northwest Folklife Festival. Haiku Northwest put the concert together, collaborating with Puget Sound koto player Elizabeth Falconer. The poems reflect the poets' experiences of nature in the Pacific Northwest, bringing forth observations in that direct, sudden and penetrating way that is so unique to haiku.
