The photo above is my attempt at taking a photo of the bullet train as it came into the station and below……

…. Surprisingly thrilling – this is my first sighting of Mount Fuji, photo taken from the train.

Joining in with Bluedaisyz Weekly Photo Challenge, prompt word: MOVEMENT

(Sometimes, just sometimes these challenges go together like peaches and cream!)

Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge, prompt words: BLACK and WHITE

A gorgeous Haiku to enjoy at the Daily Echo.

I’m going with the the 3.5.3 format again this week, in combining the challenges but have added two 7 syllable lines to create a Tanka – or is it? ooooooh, now what am I doing, playing around with the ‘rules’, I can see our Japanese guide looking sideways at me with a bemused smile at this uneducated Westerner.

And here another Tanka (5,7,5,7,7 this time)

white light heats the day

bright rays of inspiration

black night integrates

as winter hibernation

holds seeds of the new forming

And pop on over to ‘Me and the Boss’ for a Troiku and an explanation of how it works. A new one to me and this got my haiku head spinning – I must try this one out…… here goes

white light heats the day

bright rays of inspiration

white light heats the day

bringing colours out to play

made brighter by black

black shadows hold

bright rays of inspiration

white highlights sparkle

*

a day of colour

comes to a glorious end

black night integrates

What do you think? Gosh I had fun with that one!

Next week’s Photo Challenge prompt word is CONTRAST. This will be the 49th week, only 3 more weeks after that – gosh, I’m amazed that I have been able to rise to this challenge each week. I did mix up the weeks once and had to swap them round but I have actually posted a photo each week – it’s been fun – thank you to Jamie for coming up with such a brilliant list of subjects.
