New Jersey Botanical Garden haiku installation 2020

Fragrance of Lilacs

My poem at the New Jersey Botanical Garden. Photo by Carol Palomba and (c) Haiku Poets of the Garden State.

Alas, the Haiku Poets of the Garden State’s installation at the New Jersey Botanical Garden for National Poetry Month ran for only a week before COVID-19 caused the grounds to be closed.

Still, one week is better than none! Plus, all 24 of the poems from the (preempted) month-long exhibition can be seen at the HPGS website: https://hpgs.weebly.com.

My poem, above, has been “planted” in the lilac garden, which will soon be in bloom. :- )

  3. Lovely 😊. I saw your poem when I was there…pretty sure it’s in the hundreds of photos I took. Alone there, in the early morning, the haikus enhanced the experience 💜

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed the poems, Theresa! The haiku installation closed after only about a week due to the pandemic, so I wasn’t sure if anyone had gotten to see it. Thank you for your comment! :- D
