Haiku, In Many Minds
Haiku are created poems. Perhaps a person may find haiku in one’s inner self pre-fashioned. I must work to make a poem, re-making the poem fragments too. I fully accept serendipity.
Writing haiku is sure to employ imagination, to varying degrees, and humor. I like to build haiku with help from observation, emotion, and tenacity.
Flip side, considering others’ haiku. Receiving haiku allows me to sense what another person possessed or made.
Maybe, I can contact a little of how they have had to respond to the world as I take in their haiku.
My sensing of received haiku is at once fresh and mine, even if I have never visited their pond as written, and it is chock-full of “other-ness” that is so personably moving, friendly.
Another person has walked this path. Their footprints are old, they go that way, seventeen syllables or not.
Onward, as my footprints weather a bit.
