You know what? I like the haiku : I like the idea of a quest to capture an emotion, to paint a picture. I like the effect that haiku-writing has : it encourages exquisite presence.
I want to travel deeper into the experience of the world around me (and into the emotions inside me) ; I want to get closer to the turning wheel of Nature. I am open to discovering whether the haiku is the perfect vehicle for this mission – so , stand clear : I am getting into the haiku seat and taking the hand-brake off 🙂 !
My haiku adventure will take as long as it takes (that’s the first time in all my adventuring that I’ve ever heard myself say that, which is interesting in its own right)…. and that probably means a poetry collection (and that will be another first!). The form might even change along the way too 😛 .
You can read today’s haiku here (“Bramble”) and I also read it out in today’s video.
I am just going outside and may be some time.
