Nature’s Caress

A photo I took standing in the middle of a small wood at a local park while looking up through the treetops towards the sky.

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.

Nature’s Caress

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.
