Ligo Haibun Challenge

Welcome to the Ligo Haibun Challenge. This week, we have two visual prompts for you to choose. But, before we get to that, let us welcome Penny who has joined the Ligo Haibun panel as a judge.

Now, getting to the visual prompts, the first one belongs to Pirate, our host, and the second photo belongs to Meme from Mixedupmeme. Thank you, Pirate and Meme.

We welcome suggestions for word/phrase or visual prompts.
