08 Apr – 14 Apr 2020 – Daily Haiku

Each day in 2020, I’m adapting that day’s entry from the book “365 Tao: Daily Meditations” into a haiku. I’m doing this, though, following the structure of “Blackout Poetry.” I darken the words I’m not using and highlight those I am, thus allowing my haiku to emerge from the page. At the end of each seven day period, I post the previous seven as a string of haikus.

April 8-14:

Changeable viewpoints.
Dynamic experience.
The breadth of water.

Healing, waking involvement.
Inspire consciousness.

Powerful vastness.
Exploration through focus.
Joy integration.

Look to understand.
Beyond imagination.
Inner awareness.

Give balance, give thanks.
Learn compassion, keep balance.
Inner charisma.

Proper awareness.
Luminous development.
Use of basic lines.

True recognition.
Understanding compassion.
Oneness with all things.



  1. I have been so blessed by your haikus! It is synchronous to my present journey of learning the expansive and eternal nature love, compassion, and kindness. Thank you again for your wisdom and for being a bringer of hope.

    Regards to you and Melinda!

    Warmly, Joanna
