late-March snow
power lines fallen
in an untouched field

startled rabbit --
easter snow slips
from the telephone wire

chocolate bunnies –
the hollow ones
eaten last


Spring arrives –
peeps melting
on the dashboard

IV: 013 (Leap Day Schmeap Day)

As featured yesterday at f/k/a (with special poems by famed female haijin), February 29 was Leap Day -- when unmarried ladies get to propose to single men. Inexplicably, dagosan's email and phone lines were no busier than usual.
