Cycle Haiku


Never cast a clout

while the cherry blossom’s out;

wait for confetti.


“It’s cracking the flags”.

A black and white hosepipe ban;

moonlight sprays the lawn.


Fires in the fall.                                                           

Dead leaves to feed tomorrow,

daily bread for all.


Walking on thin ice,

I have promises to keep.

Season of goodwill.

Haha Trev - I kept meaning to do one anyway 😀

Yeh, I like the first one best too, but thought I'd be a smart-arse and cycle through the seasons, keeping in sight of the prompt 😃

Also - I can't decide between this last line, or

'in bleak midwinter'

Whaddaya reckon?

The much-threatened haiku? 😂

I love the first one! And the rest aren't too shabby either.

Weather? Begging for haiku that prompt 😀
