What do we allow into our hearts and heads?

fluttering their way
into my head...
plum blossoms

The great haiku master Issa wrote over 20,000 haiku, little masterpieces of kindness, wonderful caring observations of the natural world around him. Birds, frogs, butterflies, fleas, insects, snow, all entered his heart and head from season to season:

The small crow
is snubbed
geese in the rice field

There’s fun to be found here and excitement—in the littlest things. Open your heart and open your head to the incredible world of haiku.
