Heeding Haiku With HA: Mid-Year

Happy New Year Err. It seems as if it was just yesterday that the new year began. The time flies away so fast. 2015 is coming to its mid-point. Just six more months to go after the month of June and this year would also be gone. I have always found it mystifying how swiftly days go by, leaving behind nothing but a small trace in the form of a smile, a tear, some laughter or some thoughts.

You must have expected something or you must have made plans when this year began. Now that it is coming to its middle point, how are your expectations and plans coming along? Once you have thought about it, write a haiku or tanka or a haibun and tell us how this year has been so far for you.

What to do next?

1. Publish a post with your haiku or tanka if you have a blog. If you haven’t got a blog, you can share them in the comments down below. In case you have published a post, you can submit its link in the linking widget.

2. After you have made the post, take some of your time and visit the links of other participants. This is how we learn and improvise. Return again at the end of the week if you have made your post during the weekdays because there would be new links to visit, which would help us all to make connections and develop the feeling of community and togetherness in our adventure every week. Even if you can’t take out the time to visit all the links, then visit at least the link shared before or after you and offer your feedback and develop comradeship with that person.

You can also add the following tags to your post: HeedingHaikuWithHA and MindLoveMisery’sMenagerie.

  2. […] half-year: half-clouded horizon, old thoughts cast new loops around half-moon   Today begins our Family Poetry Project, brainchild of Number Three, in which each family member writes a poem a day for the duration of the school summer holidays. Can we keep it up? We are going to use a selection of prompts. Today I made a haiku per Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. […]
