Welcome to Seeds and Sand

Welcome to Seeds and Sand, a daily haiku prompt site.


Every day I will provide a photo, a video, or an existing poem for your inspiration – as well as a link for you to share your work with others.

I encourage fellow writers to read and comment on one another’s work.
(If nothing else, it’s polite!)

Over time we will talk more about the mechanics of haiku and tanka in an attempt to hone our skills.  And – over time – you will learn which “rules” you can ignore, and when!


What is ‘haiku’?


What is ‘tanka’?


What is ‘haibun’?
