biting bugs – – haiku

I have been outside many hours lately, cutting grass and setting up the garden. Though enjoying spring’s coolness, it has not all been paradise.

.

blue moon madness –

swarms of mosquitoes

out to get me

.

biting bugs –

I wonder why

I like gardening

.

too attractive –

I add more scents

to ward them off

Frühjahrsmüdigkeit – – haiku

morning haze…

snowflakes drifting

to bare branches

.

.

blossom haze…

how weary I feel after

winter

.

For Frank Tassone’s Haikai Challenge – blossom haze – (hanagumori). In response, I compare the skies of blossom time to the snow-filled skies here, just a few days ago. (Cherry blossoms are expected to bloom in Toronto next weekend.) The second poem (and perhaps the first) addresses another kind of spring haze.
