Write a Haiku writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
The topic of the prompt is to write a single Haiku.

This is the brilliant definition of a Haiku by Ray (mountainwriter49):

Haiku is a Japanese short poetic form focusing on a direct observation. While the form has many rules, several of the key ones are as follows: must not personify nature; captures an observable moment in time and not something the poet imagines is happening; written in present tense and utilizes minimal capitalization and punctuation; follows a short-long-short line format utilizing 17 or fewer syllables; two lines are grammatically connected and the third line serves as an ah-ha moment, or satori.

And this an example of a Haiku that Ray (mountainwritet49) graciously consented to share with us:

haiku (wild flame azaleas):

wild flame azaleas
ablaze along water's edge
spring's fiery bouquet
