Hart Haiku Vol. 1


Hart Haiku Vol. 1 is a new free ebook I put together this past week to celebrate my 4th anniversary of blogging. The haikus are displayed on colorful photo art cards. I chose 100 from over 150 blog posts between 2019 and 2020 to create the collection, and arranged them to tell a story. Or,… maybe more than one story. But as in life, the stories of nature, humanity, and you are all intertwined. Ultimately, it’s all One.

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.

Dreaming Again


Some like to say,
“You’re building
castles in the air,
there’s no chance
the new world
you desire will
come to fruition”.

Maybe that’s a
big problem
with this world,
when destroying
is normalized,
there’s no space
to build dreams.

Maybe some
naysayers forgot
how to dream,
so they seek
to destroy
other’s dreams
out of spite.

Perhaps we
who know how
need to teach
and encourage
those who don’t,
so everyone can
have a dream.

Without dreams
our future is
doomed to fail,
so humanity
needs to share
a dream we can
build together.

Creator, beware!

When our Creator
gave us power to create,
what was the intent?

We are playing a
random game of chaos,
with no plan at all.

The mad scientists
concoct what they call progress –
Whose evolution?

Our human future
threatened by robotics, with
what repercussions?

begs responsibility
to humanity –

How do we manage
an invention that could mean
our own extinction?
