haiku for the day: haiku

Okay. I admit it. I am just a beginner at this haiku thing. The haiku I’ve posted are my small attempts. And they are very small. But it’s a practice I have decided I need to do. If you are interested in practicing yourself, go to the two great masters, Basho and Issa. They are the teachers. Then sit and meditate for a while to get a handle on the Right Now. Let go of the Past and the Future and only live in the Present for twenty minutes. How do you do this. You sit and listen to your breath and let go of your thoughts. Think it’s easy. Try it sometime. You will see just how hard it is.
