Book of Days

BOOK OF DAYS: A POET AND NATURALIST TRIES TO FIND POETRY IN EVERY DAY

30 January 2019 (egrets)

Kristen Lindquist

NB: Haiku are not supposed to have titles; a title is seen as a “fourth line,” an over-explanatory crutch. My “titles” have usually been a word or two as a reference for me to find a particular haiku again when I scroll through a month’s worth of posts. Even including that much, though, has bothered me, because I didn’t want them to be thought of or read as titles. So for now, I’m only going to “title” my haiku with the date. I’ll probably keep it up until the day I spend an hour searching for a specific haiku...

 

Today’s haiku is a variation of a response I made to some woodblock print images that I posted today as a prompt for my Virtual Haiku Workshop group on Facebook (if you’re on FB and interested, please send a request to join us).
