Weekend Mix

Haiku Heights

Prompt - origami

spring origami -
the mighty winds from the North,
folding trees at will

NaHaiWriMo

March 9th prompt - salt

sea waves washing tears -
the spring breeze creates ripples
in salted water

March 10th - erosion

witnessing time change,
mountains eaten by water,
shore swallowed by sea

Carpe Diem

March 9th prompt - Hamaguri (cherry stone clams)
I've actually never heard of something like that before, so I'll limit the prompt to what I know

in the morning dew,
no other strategy games,
hiding under shells

the rules of our game
always changing like spring winds -
strategy, no shells!

March 10th prompt - Kiji (Pheasan)

pheasant hunting night -
giving away the close prey,
a cry from a tree

I hope you all had a great weekend!
