                                                spring showers
                                                I peel a red onion
                                                in running water

                                                footprints on the floor
                                                beginning the mud season
                                                with a new mop

                                                 a perfumed breeze
                                                 shaking loose the moisture
                                                 from peonies

Under the Basho
Modern Haiku

The photo looks like southern Maine today. I can relate to all three haiku. Just lovely!

Hi Sandy,

I'm happy to meet you. I looked at your blog. Beautiful photos and haiku.
Hope you visit again.

The third on is my favourite of these three, for the sheer importance in that new mop resonating season change

much love...

Thank you, Gillena. We are now in summer and the heat is on.
