Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Another day has risen and it's time to prepare a new episode in our wonderful (addictive) Haiku Kai. This month it's all about Modern Spring kigo based on Jane Reichhold's "A Dictionary of Haiku" and today that prompt is photographing. Next to writing haiku I love to photograph and I see many of you have that same kind of urge to make photos or paintings or other kinds of art.
I think that photographing not especially is meant for spring, but I can relate to that choice of Jane to make it a modern kigo for spring, because nature's coming to life again and that gives wonderful photos.
Jane wrote the following haiku as an example for this prompt:

Well ... I hope you all did like the read and I hope that it will inspire you to write nice haiku, senryu, tanka, kyoka or haibun.
