Haiku Blessings

In my post, 10th Anniversary Edition One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, I said that “Writing haiku is often a record of blessings for me.” I will share a few examples in a few posts.

sunrise . . .
some water
for the chrysanthemum

one poem not many
seagulls in blue sky

grey skies
and colors in the garden
blue jays

“sunrise” was published by hedgerow #133, autumn 2020; Caroline Skanne, Editor. And was the Daily Haiku: February 16, 2021, Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog .

So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture

reading memoirs

Do you spend more time thinking about the future or the past? Why?

Daily Prompt

Perhaps both the same – reflections and remembrance, along with hope and plans for the future.

As a creative note, interesting to see the history of a poem, sometimes over years.
