Cherry Blossom Festival, Cherry Blossom Welcome Center, Branch Brook Park, Newark, NJ

Poets and hosts of the poetry podcast, Haiku Chronicles, Alan Pizzarelli and Donna Beaver bring poetry to this year's 37th Annual Essex County, Cherry Blossom Festival in Branch Brook Park, New Jersey. Special guest, poet and editor of "The Haiku Anthology" Cor van den Heuvel joins us for an American Haiku Poets presentation and reading of haiku.  

Stop by this hidden treasure of the more than 4,300 cherry trees that fill this beautiful park (that's a few hundred more than Washington, DC!) and enjoy the blossoms, dance, music, and of course POETRY. 

Want to see what happens at the festival and read some cherry blossom haiku and tanka?  Here's a taste of what you'll see:
