Prompts for the month of March on Carpe Diem center around spring kigo or “season words” and Specials around haiku by Onitsura. 

Today and yesterday my Surinam cherry blossoms have been in a lot of rain—and still they stand open and—still it rains more.

My response to the prompt “Carpe Diem Special #27, Onitsura’s Cherry-Flowers” ~ 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
