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

  1. I’ve been wandering about here among all your beautiful creations, loving everything of course, Your creativity just fills me up Marina! But I came upon this post and I wanted to comment here. What an absolutely delightful gift to receive. Layers of layers, of creativity and layers of thoughtfulness and layers of originality. How absolutely wonderful for you and caring of him, dear friend of mine! xo

  2. That is SINCERELY the best haiku I have EVER read.

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

  3. “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 🙂

  4. 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! 🙂

  5. 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.



  6. 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.

    • It was nice receiving it and I loved his haiku!
      Thank you, my dear Patricia! I knew you’d like my orchid!
      Have a wonderful day and week too! 🙂

  7. This is a person who wishes to touch the hearts of his friends. It’s such a special gesture. It brought happy tears to my eyes. A special person to know. His blessings will be many .. I’m sure.
    Lovely way to start my day, Marina. Thank you. xoxo

Happy to hear your thoughts
