Haiku =

have not yet found a better definition what a haiku is: description of a moment where…

  • the mind stops and the heart moves*

as I understand this sudden aha, it works best if the writer allows themselves

to be present to the moment rather than think about it and

allows the ‘aha’ to be represented in a slight break or catch-your-breath hiccup in the language telling the moment

* Mark S from Naturist Weekly blog, reminded the author of the source of the quote – Margaret McGee’s book on The Sacred Art of Haiku. His article on the subject is being re-posted. Thank you, Mark.
