** Write a Haiku Poem
Get out a pen and paper, wander in and out of nature, and wait for something to bring a little bit of inspiration! Haiku Poetry is about the beauty that can be captured in short, simple stanzas.
With its unique style (five syllables on the first line, seven on the second, and five again on the third), anyone can write a Haiku poem. However, it sometimes takes a true master to capture the heart and mind in the space of 17 syllables.
** Read a Book of Haiku Poetry
For those who are feeling less inspired to create their own poetry, reading Haiku written by others is a great way to enjoy the day. Here are a few to get started with:
- Japanese Haiku Poems (2003) by Peter Washington
- The Haiku Anthology (1974) by Cor van den Heuvel
- The Essential Haiku (1994) by Robert Hass
- Haiku: Japanese Art and Poetry (2010) by Judith Patt
