Today the sun is shining...

There is hope....

The words are made up of pictures taken this winter. (I do love clipping masks in PSE.) The haiku is my own, based on a project called #walkmyworld via Twitter and English professors all over the country. I must admit, I like the project and will probably adapt it once I get back into the classroom as a teacher.

In a nutshell, the project instructs participants to tweet random photos of life's everyday activities. Over time, those tweets and commentary become fodder for creating "poetry of the commonplace." The featured author is Robert Hass, but it could easily be connected to William Carlos Williams, Robert Frost, e.e. cummings, and dozens of others. Haiku is one form used partly because it fits easily into the 140 character limit of Twitter. Other poet forms, reflections, artwork, and pretty much any other vehicle of communication can be used as long as they are link via Twitter. It's fun, relevant, and challenging. And very 21st century.
