Let’s look ahead to this week’s challenge!
New York’s bi-polar weather continues! It’s just past 50 degrees farenheit (10 degrees celsius). My wife, Mira, and I hiked a six-mile loop in seventy degrees F (21 degrees C) on Wednesday! The next day, the temperature didn’t break 45 degrees F (7 degrees C).
Spring is coming, and Winter ain’t happy!
This week, let’s return to a traditional kigo–one appropo of this fine New York Weather. Haru asashi translates loosely as barely Spring. It aptly accounts for this transitional weather and emerging change of seasons. This week, write the haikai poem of you choice that uses or alludes to barely spring (haru asashi).
Here’s how the challenge works:
1. write the haikai poem of your choice.
2. post the link of your post to Mister Linky.
3. pingback by posting the link to the challenge on your site.
4. read and comment on other contributors’ posts.
Stay comfortable, haijin. And happy (barely) Spring!
