Postcard from Haiku Andy!

A few days ago I received this beautiful haiku card in my mailbox.

Haiku Andy creates a haiku each day and mails it to an address he picks randomly from his hat of friends.

As he states in the back of each postcard:

Every day, I write a haiku and publish it via social media.
Every day, I physically inscribe that same haiku on a single postcard and mail it to someone in the world.
Today, that someone is you.

So, 08-05-2013 was my lucky day!

Enjoy this haiku and please do visit his blog for more, here

    That is SINCERELY the best haiku I have EVER read.

    They are often vague, nonconclusive. This starts and ends on itself, beautifully.

    “Every day, I physically inscribe that same haiku on a single postcard and mail it to someone in the world Today, that someone is you” – such a lovely gesture from Andy.

    Thank you dear Marina for bringing joy in our hearts.
    Best regards 🙂

    That’s wonderful, and such a great idea!
    Even with all the conveniences of technology, email, texting, etc., I still think nothing beats the power of holding a sincere handwritten card or letter sent through snail mail.
    I’m so glad you shared this with us, Marina. I am going to check out his blog.
    Hugs! 🙂

    Just reading all these comments now! I don’t know what to say. So many kind remarks. Thank you for sharing, and please, everyone, if you provide a mailing address, I will (someday) send you a unique haiku postcard.

    Marina, you are wonderful and I am grateful for having connected with you via shared art.

    must have been a nice surprise 🙂

  11. That is so wonderful. The recipient must be so pleased and their day brightened. I was once a member of Post Crossing. One signs up online and a postcard is sent to your house from someone you do not know somewhere in the world. Then you get a recipient’s name and do the same. I have been in correspondence for years with two different individuals from Finland and one from Germany, and it all started with a simple postcard.

  12. How wonderful . . . Ellen
