Haiku containing the word 'prose'

Book Blog is asking for haiku including the word 'prose' in a competition with the prize being a copy of Francine Prose's book 'Reading like a Writer'. This is my haiku, which reflects this August day in Edinburgh:

Summer flowers bloom -
vibrant poetry against
the prose of grey skies.

I love that! Very clever - linking the poetry to the prose. Thaks for your message to Poppy - I've found out who she is now, I'll make sure she gets it.

I love the "prose of grey skies"

I saw the word "vibrant" with my outer eye, and heard the word "violent" in my inner ear.
