Haiku: Friends Friday

As you may know I am challenging myself to writing haiku and other japanese poetry forms for 366 days of this year.  In my first blog I invited others who read my blog to write along with me and share their poetry as well.  So with pleasure today I am sharing their poetry with you.

I was asked this week if this task was hard, and if I learned anything from making this commitment.  I smiled at the first question answering “I only have 360 more days to go.”  This week of writing and sharing my photos has been fun, truly fun.

There is something I learned about writing – a blog, a haiku.  When we write, speak, share, read, listen, that energy goes further and impacts in ways we can hardly imagine.  When I sit and write a haiku in Pennsylvania and get a note from France or California, the connection, the passing of words and encouragement, the contemplation of my thoughts or any others is unifying.  It is energetic.  Our words are important.  Our beliefs, sentiments, and the way we represent them, affects not only those with whom we directly interact, but also with those literally all around the world.  If I can impact the heart and energy of someone across the globe with a simple haiku, then it makes me mindful that I need to be thoughtful about  what I say, write, or even think because it has an impact.  I am grateful for this realization.
