A Week of Haiku – Week 3

A Week of Haiku – Week 3

Writing a haiku a day challenges me to select a moment, ruminate on it, and attempt to capture its essence in 17 syllables. I’ve found that it has helped me cultivate a posture of reflection and attentiveness. I just try to have fun with it (missed the weekend again).

Tiny umbrella
Top half dry, lower half wet
The elements win

Candlelit story
Starts with a summoning song
Children gather round

The trees leaves rustle
yet their core remains unmoved
Rebellious stillness

Drop by drop by drop
From dark misty clouds above
Torrential rainfall

Sprouts send their first leaves
To receive the gift of sun
Roots toil in secret
