Welcome to The Smiling Haiku - One man's journey to be positive, present, and change the world -  one syllable at a time. 


A simple haiku has become my moment of zen. I am on a quest to write at least 1000 inspirational haiku. This has been transformational for me. I think I've found a way to slow down, pause, and appreciate the moment. As I share my humble attempts, I hope in some way I can help you do the same.
