Friends’ Friday 49
I get really excited for Friends’ Friday because I never know what is going to happen, who is going to share, and how we are going to be blessed with their creativity. So grateful for Kris K and Bill W. Both of them shared their haiku this week. Kris shared that she just had decorated a new metal tree with ornaments that spiraled as she was looking out over the rain and mist of the morning and she wrote her haiku. Thanks Bill and Kris, as always.
This week I also wanted to take a moment and share with you an extension of friends around the world who have fun creating haiku.
Mijikai Haiku, short or brief haiku. Ed Bremson, began a Facebook group in September of this year to provide a venue for sharing short or brief, non-traditional haiku. This week, Ed edited/published an e-book, The Best of Mijikai Haiku 2012. The book includes the works of 50 wonderful poets from all over the world, and I am pleased to share that I am included in the book. I am so grateful and am hoping that more and more doors continue to open. I encourage you to check out the Facebook group and get involved. If you are new to haiku, read for a day or two, and then give it a try…it is that simple…Ed suggests reading the About page to learn more and then jump in.
Also another wonderful Facebook group that I participate in is NaHaiWriMo. Again, I encourage you to join in and have some fun. Each month a prompter is chosen who gives a new idea, word, or concept, and you write haiku as you are inspired. Very much fun, good for practice, others sometimes comment, and it is a great learning experience.
So today, on this Friends’ Friday, I come and celebrate friends near and far with me:
