In this Haiku I focused on personifying the mountains, imagining what they might dream of, how they might perceive the environment around them. When I looked at this picture it reminded me of that feeling just as spring bubbles up from the quiet of winter. I also had a brief flash of an idea in my mind about how it's always the quiet of winter high up in the peaks of a mountain range. Hopefully the poem expressed some of what makes a great Haiku:<br>

> Kigo (季語), an explicit or implicit reference to a season, that defines the time of the year in which the haiku referrers to or is composed.<br>
Mono no aware (物の哀れ), empathy with nature and human life; the "feeling of things", nostalgia, regret for the passing of time, understanding of the changeability and of the transience without suffering.<br>
Yūgen (幽玄), sense of wonder and mystery; it represents the state of mind produced by the inexplicable fascination of things, the feeling of an 'other' universe, full of mysterious unity.<br><sub>Reference from @bananafish [Mizu No Oto Haiku Competition](https://steemit.com/haikucontest/@bananafish/mizu-no-oto-every-image-has-its-haiku-edition-35-english)</sub>

This is day four of my month long challenge - 13th of May until the 12th of June - to post a daily Haiku on steem. Each week will have a different theme based on picture prompts from either Pixabay.com or Unsplash.com. This week's broad theme is different <b>natural environments.</b>
