I just returned from two weeks hiking and touring in Southwestern Ireland. Some places I visited: Ring of Kerry, Skellig Michael, Cork, Dingle Peninsula, Cliffs of Mohr, Connemara National Park and the Cliffs of Mohr just to name a few places.
As I traveled, I carried a journal and forced myself to stop along the way to capture any thoughts that I wanted to save as I hiked, walked, read, ate, drank, rode, danced, shopped, etc.
I found that this get-a-way was causing me to be very prolific in my ideas and in my writings. I found myself writing Haiku after Haiku. I am a thinker that is always looking for patterns, so I love writing Haiku. Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that has 17 syllables in three lines of 5, 7, 5. I probably take some liberties on the exactness of Haiku, but I follow the rhythm of it. Here is one I wrote while there.
A Haiku in Ireland June 4, 2017
There is magic here
in this moist land called Ire.
Reverence calls out.
Rituals called forth
so we remember…connect.
To that before us.
Connect to our hearts.
That which graced our heritage.
we will not forget.
And yet, we create.
We create our rituals
so we remember.
On the returning flights, I reflected on why was it that I was so prolific there and how can I continue this?
Here are the five tips I came up with.
“I will lead with Grace
Conscience as my guide.”
5.Be a kid again and let go of that inner critic. It’s your creativity, no one else’s, so stop judging your ideas. Some of the greatest inventions began with someone saying, “That’ll never work.”
A Haiku for Your Soul
We write for our souls.
We search words to fit our quest
to create beauty.
And if they are read
it does not matter to us.
We write on our souls.
Go Forth. Be Creative.
What ideas do you have that help you be more creative.
