I missed writing a haiku yesterday. Actually, I wrote one, but I’m saving it for April 28. You’ll see why when I post it.
But around 9:30 last night, right after I pulled the covers over myself, I thought, “Oh, darn! I haven’t posted a haiku!”
I weighed my options. Should I get up and write, then post a haiku and maintain my perfect record for daily haiku during National Poetry Month? Or, should I practice the philosophy of wabi sabi, and find beauty in the imperfection?
Those covers felt so good, and my pillow, so nice and fluffy. It was a pretty beautiful feeling, even though April, in more ways than one, has been far from perfect. 🙂
