Only the first line

Today I tackled Carpe Diem’s “Only the first line” challenge creating the following four haiku from four given first lines. In Ontario, Canada, where I live, there is no sign of spring yet—as is normal in January. The first line prompts hint at warmer days, but I stayed within my local experience:

hot summer day

pine scents bear sweet memories

in mid-winter thaw

~

a walk through the city

in winter obstacle course

towering snowbanks

~

the passing spring

these cautious steps were once bold

muscle strength fading

~

steel blue night

only in photo albums

this winter
