Families dissolve,
society dismantled.
The elephants weep.

I have much more to say about elephants, and how humans can learn from them. In fact, we can learn from all of nature. But that’s for another day.

I’ve been working all week on a compilation of the best from my Hart Haiku collection. Hart Haiku was my first blog site, and I posted there between May 2019 and August 2020. Each haiku was accompanied by expanded commentary in the posts.

That writing was important, because the haikus revealed to me what I most wanted to say. As it happened, it fell into three categories: Nature, humanity (including society), and self-fulfillment. That blog was therefore an important springboard for my writing moving forward. It’s also makes for an interesting collection, because I made special photo art cards to display the haikus. The ebook contains what I consider to be the 100 best.

Anyway, watch for the announcement this coming week when I get it listed in my store. Perhaps you’d like to pick up a copy. 🙂

Have a beautiful weekend. Please treasure your family.

      The plight of the elephants is a reflection of ourselves, in many respects – what some humans do, what we as a collective allow to be done to us, and the general lack of reverence in society. Yes,it is heartbreaking. When will humanity wake up?

        At the rate the world is going now, I think it will be a LONG time, if ever, before humanity wakes up. It is so sad to see the demise of civility, the radical turn around around of what is a man or woman, and love of mankind. I am happy I am 75 yrs old and have less years to put up with the crap than the younger folks!!!
