31 Day Mindfulness Challenge...A Haiku A Day for January

Want to jump start your mindfulness in the new year? Join me and friends from around the globe in a 31 day challenge!

Write one haiku a day for the month of January. The Japanese form of poetry called haiku is simple yet profound and pares down our observations to the essence. A haiku is a short sensory thought/poem that captures a feeling or image through words. The format is one that you may remember from elementary school...first line is 5 syllables, second line is 7 syllables and third line is 5 syllables for a total of a 17 syllable poem/thought. Mindfulness is about paying attention to the present moment and so is the writing of a haiku. Please join me and others in this fun challenge during the month of January. To share our haiku, we will be using the hashtag #haikuchallenge16 to aggregate the haiku. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc are great places to post your creations. You may also paste your haiku into the comment section of each day's haiku on my blog. I can't wait to read them!
