Inspired by Bruce’s haiku and link to Haiku Heights daily challenge my daughter, and I collaborated on today’s Haiku challenge.

Deeply seething dormant

Limited to 3 lines and 17 syllables is quite challenging, but we had fun. Neither one of  us has written a haiku in some time.

This photo of Mt Shasta and Shastina in northern California’s Shasta Trinity National Forest is one I took back in 2010 while accompanying  my husband who was riding a 139 mile cycling event; The Mt Shasta Summit Super Century . We both had a very successful week-end. He finished the ride in excellent time (10 hours), and I had a lovely time hiking in Castle Crags, and photographing pretty scenes like this sunset.

Thank you Bruce for the inspiration, and Baby Girl for working on it with me.  🙂
