Japan N Alps

The summer ski-lift. Our huffing, puffing.

Can we call this a ‘Six-Word’? I personally feel the Six-Word is closer to Japanese haiku than 5/7/5 syllabled English haiku because it has fewer words in a fixed (6-worded), short form. If a kigo is included, it’s complete! I like ‘huffing/puffing’ in Tito’s post on Mt. Ogura, and have borrowed them. Permission, please!
