National Haiku Writing Month continues all year long on Facebook thanks to dozens of participants. In August, the prompts (or writing themes) were given by a different person every day.

August 26 was my day so I’ve chosen the prompt “time” because at the time when the organizer Michael Dylan Welch asked me for a prompt, I was running out of time. 

I have the feeling this is how a lot of the prompts were chosen. Susan Murata, who was in a big sewing project when she was asked for a prompt, gave the theme: seam (one of the hardest prompts this month).

It’s funny how the themes (even though they are only one word), tells us so much abou the personality of the prompters.

One of the most difficult prompt yet! (I’m not much of a seamstress.)

I love this man in a frog costume. I think it’s the third time he appears in one of my comics. He always pops up during NaHaiWriMo.  He’s Basho wearing a disguise so he can observe the frogs.
