Jumble


It’s Haiku Friday. For the past 20+ years I’ve written one haiku every day. They’re not always good haiku, although some of them are excellent. (Check out my 7-book haiku series called The Haiku Book of Days.) A few years ago I added another daily practice, which I call the “daily draw.” I create some kind of image, and many times that image owes its inspiration to my daily haiku. I’m calling them “illustrated haiku” and someday the haiku and its illustration may blossom into a new haiku book. In the meantime, I’ll share a few of them here on the blog. Here’s today’s offering. Enjoy!

One thought on “Jumble

  1. jumble origin:
    treasures large and small; no gift,
    sketch, note, discarded

    our unique jumbles
    are clutter to another:
    our precious treasures

    making sense of our
    jumble takes a lifetime: must
    learn what to treasure
