Poetea V: Sat March 20 in Winston-Salem

Teas from around the world, poets from around North Carolina—join us while we brew up the best tea and haiku for our reading and tasting at:

1:00 to 2:00
Golden Flower Center
612 N. Trade Street
Winston-Salem, NC

Poetea is a combination haiku reading and tea tasting. NCHS members read about 3-5 of their own haiku or the haiku of others, then tea is served as a knowledgeable person (Julie Reynolds) describes the qualities and background of the tea. We have several rounds like that, and then we all go to lunch. It's an enjoyable, low-key afternoon reading with a friendly, receptive audience.

Here's video from Poetea IV.

Please Note: If think you might come, please reply to this post so we can plan how many chairs we'll need, etc.

Hope to see you there!

Robert D. Wilson sent this invitation:

Please visit my web blog, The Wonderland Amusement Park and become a member. It's a diary with original haiga, prose, and under that, haiku/tanka strings.

Warmly,

Actually, new poems will be live at the Dead Mule just after midnight tonight. So if you you were wondering, come back tomorrow and we'll be up and running. I just got the home page ready last night. Helen Losse

We look forward to seeing/meeting you. Usually the schedule runs like this:

Poetea (Sampling fine teas and reading haiku and related forms.)

Beer tasting after the tea tasting! (We're a fun bunch!)

Late lunch (A good old fashion shoot-the-breeze session.)

And that's just about it. :)
