My response to the prompt “Hatsu hanna (first cherry blossom)” for Carpe Diem ~ March 2013 prompts. The informative prompt and responses to this prompt can be found on the Carpe Diem Blog.

Two additional haiku I considered for this postcard image:


this one

first cherry blossom

this one, this one

this one this one, this one



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.

Update Note: My Lavender Clue postcard has now been published on Postcards Poems and Prose.  Take a look, it’s a fun site to browse. 

Be fun—Write Haiku – Aloha
