End of year. Time to take stock. Look back. Look forward. Dig in. Dig out. Reflect . . . If you’re looking for a haiku-like way to do just that, two blogs I enjoy are offering unique end-of-year perspectives.
At Aubrie Cox’s Yay Words!, she’s saying goodbye to the Year of the Rabbit and hello to the Year of the Dragon by hosting short-form poems and haiga about, what else, dragons (and water or fire). You still have a couple of days left if you’d like to contribute; just visit her site for more information. If you need inspiration, you might like to know that dragons–often maligned in the West–are considered to be not only powerful but wise in Eastern cultures.
Meanwhile, Sanjukta Asopa’s blog Wild Berries is counting down the 12 Days of Christmas in true haiku style by posting themed samplings of haiku she’s come across during the past year. It’s a great way to pause. Reflect. Look back. Look forward. Dig in. Dig out. Well, you get it . . . don’t you?
