Haru Ichiban

#Haiku Happenings #6: revivedwriter’s latest #tanka for my current #haikai challenge!


This week, Frank J. Tassone is challenging us all to write about the “first spring gust,” which in Japanese is “haru ichiban.” I wrote this tanka, thinking about the hope of new beginnings. Join other poets here.

First spring gust blowing
Against cherry-tree branches:
Flowers’ aroma
Enticing new beginnings,
Face turned toward the soft sun.
