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

dolce vita - Italian for "living the good life"
doubutsu = a nature haiku about fauna

One of the wonderful things about living in the mountains is being able to see the deer and other animals and birds in ways that cannot be seen and/or enjoyed when living in the city.
