for Fluttering their way into my head by Gabriel Rosenstock and Mathew Staunton
What do we allow into our hearts and heads? - "fluttering their way / into my head... / plum blossoms" - The great haiku master Issa wrote over 20,000 haiku, little masterpieces of kindness, wonderful caring observations of the natural world around him. Birds, frogs, butterflies, fleas, insects, snow, all entered his heart and head from season to season: - "The small crow / is snubbed / geese in the rice field" - There's fun to be found here and excitement- in the littlest things. Open your heart and open your head to the incredible world of haiku.
