Thursday Ramen Writers

Winter, spring, summer - any season is a good time to visit the Ramen Bar at Berkelow Books in O'Connell St, Newtown.

I've been spending Thursday evenings there from 6 - 7.30pm with other writers readin, writin 'n slurpin ramen. The shitake mushroom and water chestnut gyoza are very yum and the range of ramen soups is sure to tantalise your taste buds and inspire your readin 'n writin mind. It's very informal, sometimes noisy, but a great place to talk about or read some of your current writing. $10 plus buy your own Ramen. See you there.

Below are some pics of ramen slaves Cyd and Robbie, cooking up the rich ramen brew interspersed with some winter Haiku from Cor Van Den Heuvel's wonderful Haiku Anthology of English language haiku to go with your soup. Some spring haiku in a new post coming soon!

cold saturday -
drawn back into bed
by my own warmth

the river always
out there in the dark
late train home

summers end
the quickening of hammers
towards dusk

in the puddle
   another raindrop
       jiggles the funhouse


and one from me
 winter night
 smile of a ramen maid
 warms my step
