Your Share

Responding to Your Community through Haiku is a new curriculum offered by the California-based organization Arts Corps in collaboration with Sound Transit, the regional commuter train system operator:

"Writing a haiku provides a way for us to share experiences. It is a way for people to take everyday moments and feelings and turn them into an image made out of words. A good haiku allows us to recognize the fleeting beauty of life - to actually feel beauty - simply through the words of the poem itself."

Explore the form on Arts Corps website and download the full curriculum here (pdf.)

If you would like to send in your haiku, I would like to read it.

The email address is to the right of your screen.

Ok, I'll start:

Grey sky at daybreak;
Summer is still far away.
Waves of Yellow Cabs.
