    This reminds me of a recent drive through mountains where the clouds looked like caps on the pines. I can imagine small animals not having to descend to the ground having enough to drink from the air … lovely.

    I book marked Frank J T’s site, is that a weekly prompt on Sunday?

    #Haiku Happenings #2: Petruj’s latest haiku for my current #haikai challenge!

  4. I’m looking out at the low grey cloud and thinking—I’d have to be really desperate to take a bite out of that! I bet your clouds are lovely and white and fluffy. Very effective haiku!
