NaPoWriMo Day 16: On Location

I Took A Ferry

Softly lapping waves
Cherry blossoms fall slowly
On Nami Island

NaPoWriMo Day 12: Poetry (I, too, dislike it)

A coastal spring day
Couple’s clothes and blossoms both
Share their light pink hue

A four-person bike
Children safe between parents
Only dad pedals

I dunno man I didn't have any juice today. Have a couple haiku.

10 EPIK Haikus

As my year with EPIK comes to a close, I find myself thinking a lot about the experience. Below are 10 haikus that reflect what I’ve learned while living, teaching and traveling in South Korea (though really they’re applicable to anyone teaching or living abroad anywhere!).


Soju Haiku

Order Soju Online

Are more than one haiku called haiki? I don’t think so, but I’m too drunk on soju to really care. Imo, another bottle, please! And you might want a few, too, before reading my haiku. (Is more than one bottle of soju called soji?)

A Tea Source for Kigo in Haiku

In writing haiku poems, at times, one may employ a kigo or word or phrase that signifies a particular season. Certain kigo that are obvious to us westerners would be snow, freezing rain, falling leaves etc.
In Japanese haiku there are also many very specific kigo that one may employ in their English haiku. One excellent source of Japanese kigo is the Japanese Tea Master's Almanac pictured below.

A Must See Blog.

A Japanese priest and advisor to the World Haiku Association has been posting haiku poems, some of them written about areas hit by the Tsunami with after pictures. Quite moving indeed. A must see. Just click the link on the right, the "see haiku here" blog.
Thus in this humbled state I set of for Kyungsungdae with my camera. Best wishes all. MT.
