I've been inspired by the way Molly at foothill home companion has been documenting her life over the last week in haiku and pictures. I have always loved the cleaness of haiku. No room for flowery shallow language when you have 3 lines and a total of 17 syllables (if you are following the rules;).
Jude and I checked out a book from the library composed of the haiku of Issa called Today and today. I love that this children's book deals with difficult subject of death and change in a way that is not only comforting but also (I believe) intuitive for children.
I reviewed another great children's book full of haiku called wabi sabi not so long ago but before the inception of this blog. I love when certain paths open up in my life and I get lots of encouragement along the way. It is like the Universe is waving and saying, "Hey, we're glad your here. We were waiting for you."
Molly inspired me to join do u haiku . I think it is going to be just as addictive as she warned.
