Halted by haiku

I’ve been engaging with form this year, so far writing a whole slew of sestinas, villanelles, and most recently, haiku—by far the hardest. In fact, haiku doesn’t even seem like poetry to me and barely seems like writing. It’s a spiritual practice, a mindset.—Tania Runyan, Image Journal

I’m glad I started with haiku. It has really taught me the value of noticing. Now I just have to be brave enough to try some other forms.
