Haiku Hikes and Ekphrastacy Events in Cleveland Heights
From our friends at Heights Arts. The first Haiku Hike is this Saturday, August 28th, at Cain Park.
This Saturday, join Cleveland Heights Poet Laureate Ray McNiece on a
seasonal morning ginkgo (haiku walk), through Cain Park learning and
creating poetry according to centuries-old traditions. These
customs cultivate a seasonal awareness that improves one’s powers of
poetic and natural observation.
Hikes will begin with a formal
introduction to haiku, continue with 4 stops along the way, then
conclude with a final sharing. Sign up for one session or all four
seasons in a series we're offering in celebration of Cleveland Heights'

Each exhibition at Heights arts showcases outstanding visual art which
we then celebrate through poetry during the run of that show. Perhaps
you've attended one of these readings and wondered how the poets all
train to be such impressive performers. With Ray's guidance, selected
applicants are provided a structured approach to choosing visual art
that speaks to them, developing their poetic response, and then
presenting their interpretations at one of our most beloved programs. If
you're a literary enthusiast, we encourage you to check out our open
call for poets, HERE
