Sit Spot Haiku -Winter Wren

Today’s Haiku:

  • From the distant trees
  • A melodic musical
  • A winter wren song

I had recently heard a friend describe the Winter Wren song as the electric guitar solo of the bird world. I think that is a good description of their cascading, bubbly song that last anywhere between 5 – 10 seconds. Click the link below to listen to them sing.

What is the sit spot?

A sit spot is a foundational practice for many people who are looking to develop a deeper connection to the natural world. The sit spot is a place where you can go and be with nature.  You use this spot to observe, investigate, and explore the natural world. It is a place that helps you connect to a place.  A sit spot can be in the wilderness, but it can also be in the suburbs or the city. 

 The Wilderness Awareness School says there are three factors to consider when choosing your sit spot:

First, you should feel safe in this place. Second, there should be at least some components of nature present, make sure that you are least outdoors. Finally, the convenience of your spot is critical. The closer your sit spot is to your home, the more likely you’ll visit it regularly. It should be less than a five-minute walk from your front door.

  1. Beautiful haiku, Mark. Nature constantly inspires me. I’m blessed to have my own property as my sit spot. It’s incredible what transpires in nature when you take the time to be quiet and watch and listen. Beautiful post!
