Observing 21 Whether 1
Mist Adventure
(Elfje series)

Three
Teens across
The creek hug
Hide something in a
Tree

Odd
Thing to
Do at dusk
With days’ light ending
Soon

Questioning
To wonder
Down and querry
Or just leave their
Mystery…

They’ll
Never know
I saw their
Odd event of spring
Celebration?

Whether
There was
More to it
Than that – I’ll not
Know…

Finally, Spring?
(haibun-type with Elfje)

Six twenty-eight this morning was the official time;
however Spring may be delayed as Winter hangs
on to the petticoat of warm hopes, like a child clinging
securely to their mother not wanting to let go for
fear of being forgotten, not ready to move forward.

Winters’
Tight grip
Seeks attention as
Mother Nature moves towards
Spring

Nor’easter
Packing its
Punches in inches
Snow’s shut down the
City

(I may or may not add more. Storm “Stella” has arrived!
I’ve been out four about 45 minutes ‘digging’ at around 6:15 am –
it started snowing around 9 pm last night. The snow is about 6” – 8”…in spots.
Surprisingly the street plow has been through – both sides of the road – once already.)

Fickle Spring Snows
(Elfje quad set)

Red
Cardinals eating
Green buds, yellow
Forsythia petals on the
Bush

Are
They aware
That our storm
Is somehow delayed a
Day

Slow
Moving just
Means once here
There may be more
Accumulation

Now
It’s due
Tuesday and Wednesday;
A foot to eighteen
Inches

(Of course the accumulation depends on where you are;
But even 6” – 8”s will cause enough grief on the roads –
And it still is very bitter cold. Just 18 F at 8 am)

Shelved Spring?
(Elfje series and katuata)

The
Crow Moon
was just setting
By seven close to
Dawn

The
Real feel
Temperature is ten
Fahrenheit, supposedly it’s nineteen
Degrees

Will
That lost
Hour bring spring
Weather Closer anytime soon?
No…

Tomorrow
We are
Expecting the most
Snow we’ve had all
Winter

Close to a foot is
Expected of the white flakes
Of this odd winter, this season

Note: The MayPop is what it implies, a weak tire ‘may pop’ at a most inconvenient
time as well as cause an accident! Know your car and keep it safe!

Love 28
Be-longing
(prose and Elfje)

I read in the paper that after just a day after his wife passed,
the old gentleman died the very next day of a broken heart ~
It was said that he did not want to live without her…

Faithful
Couples; for
You I wish
A heaven of forever
Togetherness
