So much life happend
although how to fit through day
just flow that feels great

Giving part of heart
building their love fundations
is my privilege

Just followed the call
to turn the great day greater
and went to the beach
28 Mar 2013
Who twist those spirals
spirals of fate churning life
if not me who live
27 Mar 2013
The silk of the words
flown down from past ceturiues
come up with flow touch

The thought through threshold
Why all getting to the point
With sun tight embraced

Life in abundance
joy of all given moments

While the touch of hands
flow energies through life time
space opens new sounds

Walk down this sand plain
gently washed by coming waves
opens histories
22 Mar 2013
Ellipses new touch
same frequency vibration
keep beaming at me
21 Mar 2013
Burned white spots on black
like silence on ether waves
crackles nervous cries
20 Mar 2013
All those small steps in
the slow lazy sunny day
bringing me forward
19 Mar 2013
Lashes of cold rain
soaked me deep to reverie
longings of wonders
18 Mar 2013
What I am seeing
that some return flows can't work
in renew old ways
17 Mar 2013
Rain flush summer down
thunder storm in me shake curse
shift past and spark hope
16 Mar 2013
Joining together
my family connection

Energy settling
in new open dimensions
as coming through light
14 Mar 2013
Universal love
without names and belongings
enhance open feeling
13 Mar 2013
Being in this stage
hunged in upper space of real
life opens bizarre
12 Mar 2013
Reconnect anew
on different new levels
and search new bright ways
11 Mar 2013
Sacrifice myself
in the name of happiness
as love never fails
10 Mar 2013
I will wait till end
of eternity... but now
challenge Fate I will
09 Mar 2013
Life's duality
with sadness and happiness
set this spirit free

Open space fall flow
Aurora and Volcano
life dreams through changes
07 Mar 2013
Orange Sputnik screams
out onto shattered space
of own dimensions
06 Mar 2013
Sand blows with the wind
choices yet to be made right
tis nobler to be
05 Mar 2013
Like time of no time
waiting for the changes flow
good souls in harvest

My haikuary

Softness of Marches
touch deeply through our talk
positive longing
02 Mar 2013
Touch of the morning
with slow rolling energies
evening tiredness
01 Mar 2013
Connecting spirits
in all divine different
levels of soul shine

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,
Gavin Bloemen
