Welcome to TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge! If you would like to participate then use either the prompt word or photo for inspiration and add a link to your haiku post in the comment section. We love to see new people! A summary of all of the entries is given each week.

This is a photo I took recently on a little jaunt into the the countryside of Western Australia. This is a typical West Aussie landscape. The red soil so rich in iron, the blue sky, a few scattered trees and endless distances. Canola is a reasonably recent addition to the landscapes, but the endless gold makes a wonderful sight.

Last week the prompt was “cut” and it inspired a number of really great haiku.

Japanese Crests

The Japanese Art of “Mon Kiri” – literally “Crest Cutting”

A fruity post from Lady Lee Manila started off the fun.

Tucked Into a Corner has, in her wonderful regular trio (despite computer glitches) nailed the genre again. I love the different facets of these three little works of art.
