Haiku and Coffee  ~your daily shot of poetic espresso~

Haiku is like poetry bonsai.  I write Haiku most every day as a personal mode of meditation.  Sometimes, it’s how I set the tone for my day and other times, it’s how I complete a process from the day before.  Then there are the simple times of pure mindfulness when I just write about what I am currently encountering in my environment.  Present, past, or future… Haiku provides an outlet for my creativity to flourish.

  2. Hi there

    Haiku has just captured my imagination again after many years – and I love your site – will be visiting often!I am drawing daily mandalas to keep my sanity – but as I become more familiar with the form and rhythm of haiku, I am starting to feel haiku words bubbling up too. When I’m feeling chirpy, I mess around with limericks – obviously for a very different purpose than haiku or mandalas- but a lot of fun! I am also intrigued with Haibun – do you ever write those?

    Thanks for the site.

    • Hi Petrolpetal,
      Thanks for visiting Haiku and Coffee! I haven’t written in a while (been busy moving to a farm), but Haiku has given me a place for my creativity & spirit to play. Mandalas are an amazing way to express physically what Haiku can express mentally. Have you considered walking a labyrinth? http://www.labyrinthsociety.com has a labyrinth locator to find one near you. Enjoy! 🙂
