I've been writing a haiku or haiku-esque poem every day (or sometimes night) since the first day of this year. So far that means 90 poems this year. Until now I've been posting these to a private group on Facebook. Trying to be profound and poetic every single day is a daunting task so until now I've posted these haiku to a private group on Facebook. That makes me feel safe from my sternest critic: my own fearful self. But I've decided to go public for the entire month of April. I can't promise that all my poems will be good or interesting or poetic. I'm sure there will be some who tsk-tsk at my western attempts at a form of poetry that originated in a very different culture and language. So it is with some trepidation that I offer you my first offering for April:
forgot to water
my tulips - out with orchids
much more exotic
Only 29 more to go! Happy National Poetry Month!
