#Haiku Happenings #6: Jules’ latest #haibun for my current #haikai challenge!
Last Weekend of April
Window view is of greens; Silver Maples, a willow, and cottonwoods.
All too soon the many pines will shed brown tassels of older needles.
The groaning lawn mowers drown out the songs of some of the smaller birds.
catkins fall, seeds fly
first white azalea blooms;
other colors fall
We share lovely dispositions, not wonky or unrealistic.
In the scrippage of your wallet, a coupon; we can’t use for dinner.
Friends we approached have also made other party plans, I give a sigh.
no need to give in
to metanoia sermons
we’ll tap leftovers
The sky’s conflicted of what to do, rain or shine; is winter finished?
The nights air almost got down to cold enough to frost the morning dew.
I’ll think about our walk in a warm dusk through hanagumaori.
blossom haze mixes
with morning shadow across
lawns; a new spring week
