Spotlight Writing Challenge – Haiku or Senryū – Micro-Season: “The Safflower Blossoms” – Prompt Reference – Write a haiku or senryū that incorporates the ‘Zooming’ technique of haiku – Hosted by Mark S. @ Naturalist Weekly

  • The Silk Worm Awakes and Eats the Mulberry (May 21 – May 25)
  • The Safflower Blossoms (May 26 – May 30)
  • The Time for Wheat (May 31 – Jun 04)

The micro-seasons were established in 1685 by Japanese astronomer Shibukawa Shunkai. While they are specific to Japan, they can be helpful to people all over the world. No matter where you live, you can use these seasons as a starting point for your own exploration of the natural world.
