  1. I haven’t thought about writing Haiku in a long time. I’m so glad you are doing so! It’s a beautiful practice for loving God’s creation and opening our hearts. I just remembered one I wrote in school, when we were taught the form:

    The fluttered freshness
    With icy teardrops floating
    The cloud whispers snow.

    In college I remember reading Kobayashi Issa’s heartbreaking little book, The Year of My Life, about his baby daughter. Very affecting. I couldn’t find the book quickly but I did find one of Issa’s immortal poems about this loss:

    This dewdrop world —
    Is a dewdrop world,
    And yet, and yet . .

    It conveys so much! So much in a dewdrop truly seen.
    I’m delighted to read this series of your haikus, when the mood strikes you! You show such lovely photos of your garden, quite an inspiration!
