Perhaps "a breath of haiku poets" could work for a small gathering, but we are pleased to say that HNA 2015 will not be a small gathering of haiku poets. With the Conference taking place three weeks from now, we have well over 120 registrants.
Thanks to all who are planning to join us in Schenectady at Union College for HNA 2015, and to those who are about to register to join our big bandwagon and celebration of haiku. If you have a suggestion for an appropriately inspired collective noun, please leave a comment to tell us
p.s. As we get closer to mid-October, I might be able to supply our attendees with a somewhat valid weather forecast. At this point, I can't say whether we are likely to have Indian Summer or need to huddle for warmth like the flock of birds in this photo of the steeple and weathercock at St. George's Episcopal Church in the Schenectady Stockade. If you, unlike most of us, start packing early, I have one word for you: layers (not lawyers).
