During the summer months - instead of putting together our regular blog - we invite our readers to contribute a Haiku reflecting on creation or efforts in creation-keeping.  Haikus are a short form of poetry, originally from Japan. Traditionally, they consist of three phrases - the first one with five syllabi, the second one with seven syllabi, and the third with five syllabi again. One Haiku is enough, but you can also combine it with a picture, a story, or another Haiku. Feeling inspired? Please send your haiku to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
