Japanese Poetry: Haiku Ginko - Writing Zen

Some people wonder how to begin to write. But nobody ever wonders how to begin to walk. If you combined those two things, and let your hand move the way your legs are moving, it is easy. A haiku (a Japanese form of short poem) captures a moment in nature. It is a doorway to Zen practice – it’s a way to write what you know. A ginko is a walk in nature, during which your writing hand keeps moving just like your legs. Whatever sights, sounds and smells you experience can transform... [More]
