Yuki no hate (end of snow) is a (Japanese) mid-spring kigo or “season word”. 

My response to the prompt “Yuki no hate (end of snow)” for Carpe Diem ~ March 2013 prompts. The informative prompt and responses to this prompt can be found on the Carpe Diem Blog.

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

Be fun—Write Haiku – Aloha
