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.

Reading, writing haiku
I see the short, simple path
towards brighter days.
Keep up the great work!
Thanks for the follow! Love the creative reply!
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.
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! 🙂
