I love you, Haiku.
Five, seven, five wordy treat.
Sweet playmate of mine.
You probably know that I love haiku.
There is something about its simplicity and how I can write one in a short amount of time, (unlike with other poetry !) that truly appeals.
Maybe it is its form as well, that balance of 5-7-5 syllables, that appeals to the Libra in me…
Whatever, it is a creative word play that I adore !
When I was in Cape Cod recently, my dear friend, Linda, shared a writing game with our group of Artsy ladies.
It was called Haikubes Haiku Dice.
You play around with the dice and create haiku based on the words on them.
Here’s the haiku that the dice gave me and that I recorded in my journal :
Moonlight eats fortune.
She tried to cover, wise one,
its livid torture.
Bizarre ? Yes ! Its meaning ? I have no idea !!!
But it did inspire a piece of art in my little journal this morning !
Not only do I love haiku for its playful form and how it inspires my art and vice versa,
but I love haiku
for the wonderful group of hearts that it connects me to each Friday.
Check them out at recuerda mi corazon!
That is a sweet treat in itself !
Happy Friday, Beautiful Ones !
