Poetry at Holden Arboretum in Ohio

One of my haiku has been selected for inclusion along the “Holden Arboretum Haiku Path” in Kirtland, Ohio.

Holden Arboretum will feature haiku for each season, allowing for the inclusion of sixty poems! The opening of the path will take place in early May with the exhibit continuing throughout the year.
The poems will also be read and recorded by the poets themselves and made available to the visitors of the Arboretum.

The Holden Arboretum is among the largest arboreta in the United States and covers 3,600 acres. Documenting more than 120,000 plants, the Arboretum’s horticultural focus is on a recognized collection of trees and shrubs, which are displayed in gardens accompanied by groundcovers and perennials, and in themed collections.
