Kiji (pheasant) is a (Japanese) kigo or “season word” for spring. Pheasant were common in my growing up days in eastern Washington State. 

My response to the prompt “Kiji (pheasant)” 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.

Etegami—the Japanese Folk Art of writing (which can be haiku but does not have to be haiku) and drawing (with or without color) intended to be sent between friends through a postal service often as a postcard (although it does not have to be a postcard either). 

This postcard is now available on the 19 Planets Cafepress shop postcard page.

Be fun—Write Haiku – Aloha
