Intentionality, creates opportunity for creativity…


I’ve been exploring this poetic form as an act of daily creativity. I enjoy the challenge of homing in on what you want to say, and how to do so in 17 syllables.

Haiku (or hokku)
A Japanese verse form most often composed, in English versions, of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables. A haiku often features an image, or a pair of images, meant to depict the essence of a specific moment in time.

Some may view this poetic form as too constrained/confined. I understand that point of view. I also view it as freeing to say less/only what is necessary.

I’m hoping to keep up this daily practice and see it become an integral part of my creative rhythm.
