Haiku & Haibun

Haiku, Haibun, and Tanka

Tricia maintains a nearly daily haiku practice — a challenge to notice and remember something wonderful and interesting every day. In 2013 she wrote more than 900 haiku… not all great haiku, but testimony to a deep gratitude for living each day. From time to time she will swap in new haiku into this slot. Rather than sending haiku off to publications, in 2016 she began a near daily practice of tweeting haiku through her Twitter account @triciaknollwind .
