The Hummingbird Blesses the Day

The Hummingbird Blesses the Day, a writing intensive workshop with Elliot Ruchowitz-Roberts, will be presented Saturday, August 20th at the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts.

Presented by the Monterey Bay Zen Center, the workshop will explore the ways in which the writing of haiku can, like the hummingbird, sanctify each day. “Each thing,” R.H. Blyth writes, “is preaching the dharma incessantly, but this law is not something different from the thing itself. Haiku is the revealing of this preaching.”

A Professor Emeritus at Monterey Peninsula College where he taught introduction to poetry and creative writing, Elliot Ruchowitz-Roberts is co-editor of the college text Bridges; co-editor/co-translator of two works from the Telugu, Sudha (Nectar) by Chalam and The Selected Verses of Vemana, both of which have been accepted into UNESCO’s Collection of Representative works:  Indian Series; and co-author ofBowing to Receive the Mountain:  Essays by Lin Jensen and Poetry by Elliot Roberts.
