    Default Spring Hiku

    Forty degrees and raining

    @#$%^

    I can never remember how many syllables each line is supposed to have. But today I don't care. Now, back to my tea and Phillipa Gregory book.

    I think you're looking at this all wrong. What could be a better backdrop for tea and a good book than 40 degrees and rain?

    Enjoy!

    Fourty degrees out
    What the hell is going on?
    April means spring, right?

    I hear you, OP.
    It's cold and rainy here, too.

    We had spring preview
    But now we're back to grey rain
    Makes it even worse.

    Sharp chill jacket close,
    a red robin puffed and squat,
    bright colors peek up.

    I think that's right, the more times I count the weirder it gets. Happy Spring everyone!

    Spring comes
    And the grass
    Grows by itself

    (I didn't write that. Very famous Jp. poet whose name I've spaced on. The number of syllables is correct in Japanese. But I thought we all needed to hear it!)
