I started writing haiku during my journey through Japan. My Haiku are written for the people of the 21st century. Our nature is our body and mind. But many of us are losing bodily contact with nature. The urban environment has become the natural habitat for at least two thirds of the world population. This affects us in how we can connect to nature and how we experience ourselves. Is it still possible to feel we are parts of a living cosmos? I believe we must find new roads to the inner worlds which lay hidden under the brick and cement of our urban existence. I hope playing the Haiku Quartet game will contribute to that.
The game is played like a traditional game of Quartets. Each player tries to collect sets of four cards, a Quartet. If a player is able to cite the Haiku that he needs, the other players are held to give it to him. The one who gathers the most Quartets, wins.
