Slice of Life: Haiku Postcards

(This is part of the Slice of Life project)
This is kind of cheating, but I finally gathered up all of my haikus that I wrote on a family trip to Japan two weeks ago and created this slideshow, so it is a Slice of Life — but not immediately recent. One interesting side note, though, is that I was talking with a teacher at my son’s preschool and he mentioned that he has been writing haikus recently, too, and we are now exchanging our poems with each other. Very cool to be on a poem hand-off with another teacher.

Peace (in poems),

  1. Kevin, this is lovely! Your pictures and your poems. What ‘cheating’? These are all slices of your life … you’ve included enough to get you through to the end of the month! Looks as though you had a wonderful trip.

  2. The week we were in Shizuoka, Japan, Mt Fuji was fogged in–rainy, stormy. How nice to see you made it the top, and also caught the views from down below. The haiku are wonderfully written, wry and catch so much of that feeling of foreignness. Great, and thanks for sharing these!
