Hamaguri or cherrystone clams are a (Japanese) kigo or “season word” for spring. They are used in soups and eaten from the shell. The shell of this clam is traditionally used to make the white “stones” for the strategy game of Go, which is a board game played with black and white rounded disk-like stones. 

My response to the prompt “Hamaguri (cherrystone clam)” for Carpe Diem ~ March 2013 prompts. The informative prompt and responses to this prompt can be found on the Carpe Diem a daily haiku meme Blog.
