haiku: introducing the daily haiku

 

As I was contemplating whether to participate in October’s #write31days writing challenge this year or not, I decided that a small daily offering might be achievable. Lengthy posts are out of the question when energy is pretty limited.

The challenge is to keep going and being concise will aid me in that goal. I would like to offer you a mini poetic feast for the month of October. A daily helping of haiku, no less. A tiny offering that is brief to read, meaning less work for you and me!

My plan is to produce a haiku poem a day, with an accompanying image and maybe a few opening or closing thoughts. The topics  will cover aspects of life and faith.

It will be a mix of the light-hearted and reflective. My series is  called ‘The daily haiku’.  Just a small nugget to read and think about each day. Nothing too ponderous.

 

I hope you will join me. Prayer support would be lovely too! I must admit that timing isn’t brilliant, coming hot on the heels of extra busyness, while we’ve been decluttering over the last few weeks.

However, a persistent holy nudge that refuses to go away is suggesting I do this regardless, leaning heavily on God’s grace for strength, support and inspiration as always.

Here’s a haiku vignette to whet your appetite…

The daily haiku

I want to offer
a little nugget to read
slow, or at great speed

There may be a choice
of vignette to chew on, or
a small, solo song

But whichever comes
to mind and to view, it’s still
the daily haiku
