Tackle It Tuesday in the tradition of Basho … prompt: the photo below.

Today on Tackle It Tuesday, Chevrefuille has prompted us to attempt a traditional haiku in the manner of Basho … whom I love and read fervently.  So we are meant to abide by 3 rules here: 1) 5-7-5, 2) kigo, 3) make a meaningful statement (through what I term a punchline). However, I am growing up in the American haiku tradition of Michael Dylan Welch at NaHaiWriMo … kind of a no 5-7-5 school.  So here we go.
