... it's not haiku,

but today's haiga at my simply senryu weblog might inspire one (by you or me).

Just in case the Muse has left the premises, here's a poem written four years ago today, when we still had some unmelted snow on the last day of March:

the fog lifts
with the second cup

mud and sunshine
spring begins
without you

- warm wishes to all those gathered today in New York City to honor the life, work and memory of Bill Higginson -

the view
from the sofa
March madness

- there's no ice on our local hoops this year, but curmudgeonly dagosan is still annoyed by all the Big Dance and March Madness cliches; if you nonetheless have the fever and are in need of basketball haiku and senryu, you'll find more than a bracket-full by scrolling this post at f/k/a (including top-seed presentations by Roberta Beary and Ed Markowski) -

mid-March sunset
one last night
for that last patch of snow

flood warning
our neighbor says hi
for the first time this year

daylight savings time:
we save sunset
for dessert

too bright for romance
dessert postponed

head over heels --
landing hard
on yesterday's snowmelt
