Midnight came with some sadness this evening, with no prompt for a haiku. But The Cloaked Monk, whom I discovered during last month’s Haiku Challenge, has started a new March Challenge.

Approach the prompts from whatever creative standpoint you would like. Photography, poetry, prose, etc. Be humorous or serious. Be literal or use the prompt as a springboard to something more. Just put your creativity in gear!

March 1: On this day in 1872, Yellowstone National Park was established. Reflect on camping.

My offering comes in the form of a rictameter:

my tent
beneath the moon
thin nylon walls reveal
firefly shine and raccoon rustle
mind conjures fairies, dancing on parade
otherworldly celebration
lanterns casting shadows
flickering on
my tent
