April winds down, and with it, traditional spring. Friday begins the month of May, that Marion Month, that month of flowers brought on by April showers (like today). It’s fitting, then, to contemplate late cherry (blossoms).

Are there any cherry blossoms left? Has the rain, and progression of season, ended them all? Or do some late-bloomers remain? As the world struggles to return to open society, surely we would all welcome one last sign of spring?

This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to late cherry [blossoms*] (osozakura).

As always:

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.

Enjoy the last week of April, haijin! For those doing the #NaPoWriMo2020/GloPoWriMo2020 30/30, you’re in the homestretch! Good Luck!
