Haiku is a form of poetry that originated in Japan but is now prevalent throughout the world. It is a form of creative writing that supports the art of living mindfully and the contemplative way of living in the world, allowing us to waken to that which we might otherwise overlook.
A haiku itself is a poem consisting of three short lines that do not rhyme. More than that, it is a way of looking at the natural world and experiencing it more intimately, seeing something deeper, connecting with the very nature of existence.
Perhaps you don’t think of yourself as a poet! Not to worry! You will be guided and supported through the creative process of composing a haiku. The best haiku emerge from the direct, immediate, uninterrupted and meditative attention to the natural world and the art of life itself. Plan on moving outdoors for short walks during which you will compose haiku that we will share with one another.
