the fickle season
Spring flings her warm, sunny days
then slaps us with snow

    You nailed our spring here…40 degree differences in some days during March.
    I will put up my spring lines below but feel free to criticize any of my lines, Jan! I love haiku but just don’t always understand how to do them. One editor really raked me over the coals for giving mine titles…I did it so we could know which lines we were referring to! But he humiliated me about my lack of knowledge!

      Claudia, I’ll admit I’m not formally traine in haiku, but I know what touches me when I read it, and your haiku is lovely–especially the last line. 😊

    take down your old sign
    toss your seeds into the wind
    watch your world turn green
