Applying the idea of writing small to my prompt, I thought of a haiku for the season. I love haiku. I was introduced to this poetic form when I was in sixth grade. I use it as a snapshot — trying to capture a vivid image in seventeen syllables. If you aren’t familiar with haiku, it is a three line poem, usually concerning nature. The first line is five syllables, the second is seven, and the third is five.

In April. the sky
Cries. Out of anger? Sadness?
The earth send flowers.
Nice haiku. You’ve invoked a beautiful image here.
Thanks so much! I really enjoy the challenge of haiku — saying as much as I can with so few words.
