Spell: National Haiku Poetry Day

Color of the Day
Incense of the Day
 

In addition to Easter Sunday, today is National Haiku Poetry Day. Compose a haiku to describe and represent what you will be releasing during the waning moon. As you may know, a haiku is a Japanese form of short poetry composed of three lines only, the first and third lines containing five syllables and the second line containing seven. There are two other traditional elements to include. First, a “cutting word” (kireji) should be placed at the end of the second or third line. Think of this as a question, an exclamation, or another incisive word that breaks up the verse or otherwise asks the reader to pause. Second, a seasonal reference (kigo) is also included in a haiku, so you may also want to include a word or phrase that is evocative of spring. Take your time until your haiku feels just right, then place it on your altar as a reminder of what you are releasing. Leave it there until the dark moon on the 29th.
