I scroll through my twitter feed early mornings until something grabs my attention inspires haiku--actually haiga which is haiku with a visual (see captions for image credit links).
It is indeed hopeful to spend time noting significance in each day. And, I've so enjoyed seeing other poet friends responses to the invitation as well. Search #haikuforhope on twitter to find more.
Buffy Silverman is hosting our round-up today. Thank you, Buffy.
