four, five, nine years
always the first to bloom…
Today we start our 300th Haiku challenge. It feels like an incredible milestone and, looking back at how this project has been filling my life with new friends and music for the last 5 years, I’m grateful to all of you for keeping it alive and inspiring. I hope this journey together has, and will, help you stay creative for a very long time.
For the occasion I chose this poem by Kobayashi Issa, an author I’ve learnt to appreciate over time, especially for his optimism: his poems were often lively and humorous, despite his life was marked by sorrow.
Seven days to make music in response to the assigned haiku: to participate visit https://www.naviarrecords.com/about/naviar-haiku
