After more than a week, I believe, of missing one of my favorite haiku prompts I sat down this morning with the intention of joining back in today if for only a little while. I have been extremely busy, and down with my ailments a bit, too, the last couple of weeks and not able to participate in many of these exercises. And I’m afraid I am entering a rather busy season and may not be able to participate as regularly as I would like in the coming weeks.
Picking up with the theme of “summertime”, our host at CDHK has selected the word “clouds” for today’s inspiration. Since I love to look at the sky watch the clouds, in all their shapes and colors, this one was a fun one for me to do. Although I don’t do it as much as I used to, I used to be a fairly prolific cloud–photographer. I looked through some of my recent photographs and found one that inspired me to pen the follow a poem.
