The back of the postcard said it all:
Every day, I write a haiku and publish it via social media.
Every day, I inscribe that same haiku on a single postcard and mail it to someone in the world.
Today, that someone is you.
I started this project as a way to expand and intensify my daily haiku practice. Although I’d been doing a daily haiku for years, I only started sending out the postcards in March 2012. In April 2012, I began posing and photographing the card, and posting the photo along with the haiku itself.
That first experiment wrapped up in November 2014, after 1,001 haiku postcards had gone out.
This site is largely an archive of that original round, but I am resuming the project shortly. If you want a card, please request one here.
Did you get a postcard from me? Cool. I’d love to know your reaction.
Why you? Why NOT you?
