spring blossom budding
lull afore desert’s dog days
haiku by M. Nakazato LaFreniere
Spring is a very short season here before the summer heat hits. In a few weeks what passes as winter’s cold leaves us with spring dropping by to say hello before heralding in the blasting furnace winds of our desert summer. I love spring.

CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI
A haibun and haiku for Panneman’s springtime challenge. Not sure if my haiku counts as a classical haiku as the flip is in the middle instead of at the end. Ah well, I really wanted to finish with “ablooming” as I hope to see some flowers soon. I do want to practice haibun’s more — short one paragraph lyrical prose — as I hope to do a haibun project this summer.
