The twenty seventh
is always a special day
so let magic flow
25 Feb 2013
Wonderfull wonder
where everything fits in place
Mesmerising me
23 Feb 2013
Grounded by ocean
through my son's very old soul
in meditation
22 Feb 2013
Flying low and high
between own mixed emotions
grounding was needed
21 Feb 2013
Deep in space abyss
gravitation pull embrace
state of weightlessness
20 Feb 2013
The lightness become
joined in the ocean of dreams
whisper magic words
19 Feb 2013
The loop is broken
White heron line Moon and Sun
Pure love will prevail
18 Feb 2013
Dive deep to Oceans
new Energy is settling
between Moon and Sun
17 Feb 2013
Gravitation do
not hold guardian Angels when
they lift me to space
16 Feb 2013
When Moon and Sun shift
the Angels will fight for me
sending Mandalas
15 Feb 2013
Shadow of bright star
resurface my darkness fear
to conquer within
14 Feb 2013
Light of our bright star
reflected in full colour
on ocean surface
12 Feb 2013
Shared this time last drink
with his sudden departure
while healing spreading
11 Feb 2013
Portal is open
deep down from the primal core
untangle the loop
10 Feb 2013
The star shines for me
encourage me to say words
the music that flows
09 Feb 2013
Interregnum time
upon us on all levels
light and love is bless
08 Feb 2013
Collapsed in the dream
broken dark glass and thrown keys
Old darkness relieved
07 Feb 2013
The shift took breath away
from my mind and whole body
Our thankful blessings
06 Feb 2013
Experience Feeling
Immense and Immaculate
Imperative Change
05 Feb 2013
What matters cold snow
when Sun and Moon energies
come close together
04 Feb 2013
And so that leads to
the quantum entanglement
deep soul connection
03 Feb 2013
Untangling the loop
and access the pure beauty
true love is humble
02 Feb 2013
With touch of nature
fresh road that lies straight ahead
welcome to step in
01 Feb 2013
Board washed by the sea
moved by me the past guardian
of The Seventh Seal

What is haikuary?

The term 'haikuary' is a blend of the words 'haiku' and 'diary'. Haiku is a short form of poetry, originating in Japan a few centuries ago.

Haiku normally contain 3 lines totalling 17 syllables, in the order of 5 / 7 / 5

Matsuo Basho, Japan's most famous writer of haiku, will illustrate the form:

Wrapping dumplings in
bamboo leaves, with one finger

she tidies her hair

A simple and beautiful glimpse into a flake of his life.

Here it is again, broken down:

Wrapp-ing dump-lings in (5 syllables)
bam-boo leaves, with one fin-ger
(7 syllables)
she tid-ies her hair
(5 syllables)

Why did I do it?

I was sitting with a friend in a Japanese restaurant in Auckland, New Zealand. Whilst waiting for our food I wrote a haiku on a paper placemat. It was something about noodles jumping into my belly and that we shall be good friends.

My friend suggested that this kind of simple poetry would benefit the children in her class and help them reflect on their day-to-day lives. I agreed and decided to create something online that would enable that, for everyone.

Taking time to reflect on the tiny and often forgotten moments in our daily lives can be cathartic and it's amazing what you can capture when limited to just 17 syllables; it focuses the mind.

But haikuary is not about Poking and 'I Like This!' so feel free to switch on 'private mode' (in your settings area) and keep your writings personal, or share them with the community and inspire others.

Why the invitations?

This was never going to be a giant project, and I wanted to ensure that the people creating their daily haiku were here for the right reason; to take time out, to reflect. I believe that word of mouth, friends inviting friends, tends to be the best way of achieving this.

It also makes it a little special.

And it's yours

Whilst this is a great place to write and centralise your haikuary from anywhere you have an internet connection, you should ideally download your writings as often as possible.

I will do my best to ensure your haikuary entries are safe, but we all know how technology can let us down. Personally, I download my haikuary at least once a week. Go to the menu inside your account (top right hand corner) and select Download as PDF - I have designed it to look like an old book.

Thanks for sharing

I hope you enjoy adding to your haikuary every day. If you think you know someone who may also enjoy taking a small amount of time every day to create their own, send them an invite (it's in the menu at the top right corner, when you're logged in)

If you have any suggestions as to how I could improve things, do get in touch.

in love,
