Haiku Journal

I have started a Haiku Journal, which I will try to post fortnightly (approximately). Every day I jot down the haiku moments of that day – the moments where you feel really close to nature, moments that intake of breath that is a mixture of joy, surprise and wonder.

Haiku Journal – 3

Most of my haiku moments involve nature. But recently I was watching a recording of the cricket match between England and Pakistan. A young batsman by the name of Zak Crawley was making his début appearance for England. The grace, timing and balance of his flowing stroke-play produced in me the same kind of joy as might watching my cat’s supple, acrobatic leaps.
