Haiku is like poetry bonsai-it begins with a general concept and is distilled down to concise form. I write Haiku most every day as a personal mode of meditation and contemplation. 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.
