The opening – Sunday Nov 4

Macandrew Bay was inundated with art and poetry lovers at 5pm. According to reports, cars were lined up on the side of the road as far as the eye could see. I was so busy in the Gallery catching up with friends, selling exhibition booklets, explaining about Poems in the Waiting Room,  checking on food supplies that I didn’t have a chance to see the effects of the exhibition on the community’s parking spaces!

The lovely Sophia Frentz, pictured on the left on the previous page, is a Dunedin student and a haiku poet. Her mother, Sandra Simpson, from Tauranga  is also a haiku poet. Sandra was my North Island contact who selected the haiku poets for our exhibition. And what a terrific group of poets she gathered.  Unfortunately our 12 haiku poets couldn’t get down for the opening so Sophia was their colourful representative.
