is hosted this week by Heidi, at my juicy little universe. Be sure to stop by to enjoy her talents of poetry and sharing.
Thank you, Mary Lee Hahn, for inviting all to #haikuforhealing in December. I love how Catherine Flynn describes this as a "shift into low gear."
With each haiku, written or found (selecting a 5-7-5 syllable pattern from existing text) below, a caption details inspiration for the words.
Each haiku is paired with an image, so they are more haiga (Hagia are typically painted by haiku poets, and often accompanied by a haiku poem) than just haiku.
Many are online stories. Click for further reading if you wish.
Happy New Year to you and yours!
