Lake Michigan

weeping willows
reach towards ground
humility

small waves to shore
one song after another
fades to silence

how does it stay
so regal on this day?
Queen Anne’s Lace

lake and sky
the same color
Autumn Equinox

highway sounds
in the distance
years gone by

Sharing Haiku Lesson 2 – The Haiku Foundation Digital Library

Haiku Art Site 2012 - 2017

Jim Kacian and I completed a new lesson plan:

Sharing Haiku Lesson 2 – The Haiku Foundation Digital Library.

I will keep this post short, and hope you can look at the plan if you are interested.  It lists the 7 collections in THF Digital Library, and the lesson features a book by Ion Codrescu.  Garry Eaton is the volunteer librarian.

The Haiku Foundation is non-profit.

Thank you

How to Haiku by Jim Kacian: New Lesson Plans

Haiku Art Site 2012 - 2017

I read How to Haiku by Jim Kacian (Winchester VA: Red Moon Press, 2006), which is available in The Haiku Foundation Digital Library.  Then I wrote three lessons for the Higher Education category on the Education Resources page.

How to Haiku 1

How to Haiku 2

How to Haiku 3

Thank you to Jim Kacian for his work in publishing these lessons.
