Now to this week’s challenge!
First of all, Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all Irish or Irish-descended! Our cornbeef and cabbage will soon be in our slow cooker, or so Mira tells me.
The celebration of Ireland’s patron saint comes annually at this opportune of times. For this week, the spring equinox comes to the Northern Hemisphere! The official beginning of spring finally arrives.
Even if another nor’easter is rumored to be on its way!
This week, therefore, write the haikai poem of you choice, in which you state or allude to the spring equinox (higan).
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.
Enjoy the warmth, light and quickening of the coming season, haijin!
