This week’s prompts are at the bottom. The modified haibun, below, was written for practice. I opted for an American Sentence instead of a Tanka or Haiku. Practice makes perfect.
The canyon shone golden in the early morning sunlight and dust motes floated like lightning bugs. Clouds, powered by an onshore breeze, scudded inland across blue coloured skies and a dusty black Jeep crouched beneath the willow at the verge of the mesa that was “Lion’s Camp.” Nick Dash had unpacked the picnic basket and now waited, watching fledgelings race the clouds overhead. He heard Victoria’s truck approaching before he saw it crest the rise at the edge of the camp. She parked next to the Jeep and swung down. This day had been carefully planned for weeks; and she thought Nick looked great in the first light of day, his eyes gleaming, competing with the dawn.
Big Nick’s day was filled with promise, sandwiches, and opportunities
