How To Write Haiku: Moments Of Creative Presence
Writing and reading haiku cultivates mindfulness and creative presence. It’s an act of transcription.
The moment gives us the poetry, as it is created through us. Then the haiku expresses the poetry, gives us a kind of verbal photograph, in a contained form: often 5-7-5 syllables.
Every place, every moment in time, is full of poetry. All we have to do is open up to it, allow it, express it.
This How To Write Haiku book about capturing moments of creative presence is a guide to how to do that and a reminder that poetry is always possible.
