Looking ahead:

“…To the East, land of the wet wind…”

line from a ceremony, Order of the Arrow (BSA)

The pine boughs rise and fall. I hear my old wind chime ringing out underneath the deck. Cottonball cumulus float across the clearing sky. The wind is here.

There have been some blustery days. A passing tempest knocked over an adirondack chair; I mistook it for an animal one night. When it passes through our neighborhood, we hear the low woosh, a dull roar that marks its passing. As March appears on the horizon, I expect I’ll hear more and more of the wind.

What better week for the spring kigo, East Wind (Kochi)?

This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to the East wind (Kochi).

As always:

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.

Break out those windbreakers, haijin!
