My response to prompt “#154, Shuntoo (Spring Lantern)” for Carpe Diem ~ March 2013 prompts, which are centered around “kigo” or “season words” for spring.

Childhood memories of late spring in Minnesota are part of the source and inspiration for this work.

March on Carpe Diem has been divided up into three different seasons of spring kigo: Early-Spring, Mid-Spring and Late-Spring. Shuntoo (Spring Lantern) is a Late-Spring kigo. 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
