#Haiku Happenings #1 (3/5/19): Merril’s latest #haibun for my current #haikai challenge!
Small white crocuses push through the soil, seeking the light. Soon, they’re covered in snow. Here, now, this bipolar month swings between seasons, sometimes in a day. But March gusts will turn to gentle April breezes. Soft showers will carry the scent of flowers, and the trill of birdsong will float through windows opened to the light. I see the beauty of the snow-dusted trees, but I long for spring.
Another year turns,
tender greens peep through soft white–
dreams roll in on clouds
This is for my March Madness prompt on dVerse.
I’m also linking this to Frank Tassone’s Haikai Challenge on light snow.
