Is it spring?

Another haiku for the spring…or is it still winter? Or even summer? Hard to tell, some days, especially at a time when – in many countries – clocks go forward tonight.

dappled blue spring day
all indecision: winter
then humid summer

At the Turn of the Clock

Many countries in the northern hemisphere alter their clocks this weekend. While our cousins in Australasia, southern Asia and South America look forward to spring, we in the north know only too well what lies ahead. Time for another new haiku for you…

breathing nostalgia

we feel the year’s great wheel turn—

smell winter’s bonfire
