Book of the Week: Anthology of the Southern California Haiku Study Group



The Southern California Haiku Study Group, founded in 1997 by Jerry Ball and moderated by Deborah Kolodji, meets monthly at the Hill Avenue Branch Public Library in Pasadena, California, to workshop haiku. Annual anthologies of members’ haiku are another prime focus of group activity, and we are pleased to present their 2001 Anthology, edited by Jerry Ball, as our Book of the Week.


Filled with spider webs
the arms of the saguaro
reaching for the sky
– Tom Bilicke


days grow longer
the bed is wrinkled
on one side
– Margaret Hehman-Smith


in the mirror
a much older woman
returns my glance
– Naia
