Seabeck Haiku Getaway Reading

What a wonderful treat to find on a Monday morning! Dejah Leger filmed several poets reading their poems at the recent Seabeck Haiku Getaway. Enjoy!

Oh, Curtis, I'll be coming back to this one again and again. I had so hoped I'd get to see a bit of Seabeck. So many thanks! Merrill

And let me add a big old Southern "Thank You" to Dejah Leger for recording this snippet of haiku history.

I've watched the video several times today. :)

It would be great to have you all at Seabeck next year (same weekend next October). More folks attending from around the country would be a treat. We had such a great time, despite the rain to start (but, hey, we had rainbows!). And next year we'll be expanding to a three-day weekend instead of just two days. Thanks for posting Dejah's wonderful video, Curtis.

Thanks for posting the video! It's so great to put faces with names. I'm hoping to make more of these in the near future. Haiku goes high tech!

If you haven't seen them yet, I have an extensive set of photos from the 2009 Seabeck Haiku Getaway online at http://picasaweb.google.com/MichaeDylanWelch/SeabeckHaikuGetaway2009# -- including a few photos of when Dejah was recording this video. We had a great time! Thanks to Dejah for her video!
