Spotlight Poetry & Writing Challenge – Micro-Season: “The Swallows Leave” – Naturalist Weekly Prompt – Migration of Birds – September 17 – 2022 – Hosted by Mark S @ Naturalist Weekly

Naturalist Weekly

We have entered the micro-season of “The Swallows Leave”. This is the third micro-season of the mini-season of White Dew. The micro-seasons within White Dew are:

  • White Dew on Grass (Sep 07 – Sep 11)
  • The Wagtail Calls (Sep 12 – Sep 16)
  • The Swallows Leave (Sep 17 – Sep 21)

No matter where you live you can use these seasons as a starting point for your personal exploration of the world around you.

As a way to celebrate this season, we will investigate the swallow and its migration patterns. Then we will read haiku by Buson and Issa. This season, we also invite you to write your own migration-inspired haiku and share it with the community.
