Playing with Shadows


Moments of Haiku-ness

Haiku is an elegant form of poetry was established in Japan over ten centuries ago. Haiku contains five syllables, or sounds, in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the last. The Academy of American Poets asserts, “As the form evolved … the philosophy of haiku has been preserved: the focus on a brief moment in time; a use of provocative, colorful images; an ability to be read in one breath; and a sense of sudden enlightenment and illumination.”WHY? I was yearning to get back into creative writing on a regular basis. But with my crazy schedule, I had difficulty finding the time and energy. Recently inspired by a presentation by Noah Scalin and others, the haiku form seemed to fit what I was looking > brief yet structured way to celebrate a moment.

Some will be silly. Some will be reflective. Most will be celebratory. Just note that this will be a continuous work-in-progress as I discover the art of the haiku. So please join me on my creative journey to be inspired by the momentous moments throughout each day for for one year at Lynn Raven Media on FacebookTension Edge 3.28.19
