Didn’t I say that May begins summer according to Traditional, lunar calendars? Then why were their flurries falling in my neighborhood earlier today?

Whatever the peculiarities of weather, the circle of life continues. The deer that frequent my backyard have dropped their fawns. I see them grazing in the morning or evening twilight, drawing ever closer to the garden beds. Ah, the joys of harmonious living!

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

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 beauty of the fawn, haijin!
