····new braids in the girl’s hair—each day
The littler girl swung her head to feel her braids whip back and forth. At Christmas, her hair wasn’t nearly as long.
Today my wife and I discussed jointly offering a class. I could discuss and guide the writing of haiku, and she could offer a complimentary course in block printing. I’ve been wanting to give a class on poetry for years—more than just haiku. But I’ve begun to think that writing haiku might be a good way to begin with poetry in general. The form teaches the mind to think purely of the image, to use words only necessarily, and to tightly knit content with form.
But poetry, in general, too.
