I had my sixteen-year-old daughter select a writing prompt from my 1000 Writing Prompts book that my husband bought me. She chose prompt number 423.
423. Write a haiku about nature.
A haiku is a traditional Japanese three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. They often incorporate imagery of nature.
The beauty I see
As with her loving caress
Nature surrounds me
I’ve chosen to release this poem today because it’s Japanese Culture Day, and a haiku seemed a lovely way to honor such a beautiful culture.
