Paint a garden mural

Paint a garden mural (a haiku)

Drip, drip, slap and dash
Repainting the garden wall
distant mountains high!

This haiku tells of an effort to repaint the garden wall with a few tins of paints. The careless slaps and dashes of the brush yield a garden mural instead- one with distant high mountains!
