Haiku, Nature, and Heart

A white flower-moon,
days away from being full.
She shines anyway.

 

During May I was lucky enough to partake of a Haiku retreat. It demands careful observation of nature, translated into plain words with a resonance of the soul. What is taking place? Why should we care? 

It’s a different use of language. I can’t climb inside a particular image to leverage its world. Difficult. Bracing. Might be a great exercise for a class of naturalists.
