Thank you to everyone who sent in a haiku! Can’t tell you how much I enjoy reading them. It’s a balm for my nervous system. The creative spirit is fundamental to us humans and strengthens our connections!
Up first from Jeanette, who gets extra credit for taking a picture:
(Jeanette has a very droll sense of humor and I am laughing at “safe connection.”)
Extra credit too for Truus Visser whose native language is Dutch. A lot said here, very artfully:
birds fill in the silence
handsoap foams fragrant
Here from Nancy Murphy, mother of four, a positive spin on quarantine:
Games, puzzles unearthed
Joyful sounds, parents exhale
Nancy adds, “Please note that my poem is in no way intended to make light of the seriousness of the virus and its consequences. Hope we all get through this ok.”
And from Michigan resident Gail Haffey, gardener extraordinaire:
Season for pansies
The snowflakes touch them gently
Sun melts them away
Thanks, everyone! I’ll post more tomorrow.
Keep them coming!
