Day 27 NaHaiWriMo 2017

I don’t buy him

 

Today’s prompt was “buddha” and  I found out that the prompts come from a quote! Michael Dylan Welch used a quote from R. H. Blyth for inspiration: “Haiku is a hand beckoning, a door half-opened, a mirror wiped clean. It is a way of returning to nature, to our moon nature, our cherry blossom nature, our falling leaf nature, in short, to our Buddha nature.” That’s why a few of the prompts have been repeated. This is one of Welch’s favourite quotations from Blyth about haiku. Learn more on the NaHaiWriMo Facebook page.
