lush rich vibrant greens
Spring transitions to Summer
I had another plan for Haiku #4 and was going to use my list of words from last week and think differently. However, I explored a fairly new Metro Park in our area tonight and found myself collecting words as I was running. Then I was stringing words together and counting syllables. I was a bit surprised to find myself "writing" while running. Maybe that list of words will be revisited when I get stuck one week. As I was writing, I really wanted to capture the big feeling I felt while exploring this park and when it came down to one word I recounted the syllables many times to make sure it was five. I always think of haiku as a string of words but discovered it doesn't have to be.
