haiku for the day: grass

Composing haiku is a good practice for a writer. The practice forces the writer to pay attention to the smallest detail. After practicing it for a while, the writer comes to understand that there are no wasted moments. No wasted details. No details is too small. A haiku is meant to be spontaneous to one’s environment, especially nature. To live in the moment. Unlike so many other literary forms, even poetry, a haiku is like a painting. It is made up of images, and only images.

dewy wetted grass
a green blanket on the lawn
tickly to the sole
