Place-Based Haiku Poetry
Release Date: 12/07/20
Greetings from Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center and welcome to this week’s Mindful Monday: Place-Based Haiku Poetry! We invite you to find a location that contains a natural element, then write a place-based haiku poem after immersing yourself in the sensory experience of your choosing. Download the packet attached with this video, then find a spot to contemplate and meditate on the sensory experience that presents itself. The packet will offer guidance to take note of your sensory experience and the emotions it may provoke, to later transfer into Haiku poetry. As you begin your poetry writing process, take the sensations, observations, and emotional response of your experience to craft your Haiku Poem.
