From Spring to Summer

Summer time

It’s a lifetime
the learning process,
but it seems evidence
that after Spring
comes Summer


Thank you to all of you for this wonderful Spring Haiku.

May morning -
three ants in the lid
of the honey jar


matin de mai -
trois fourmis dans le couvercle
du pot de miel

Day in day out

Day in, day out,
it is raining - old birch trees
knitting a green lace

Päivästä toiseen
sataa - koivut kutovat
vihreää pitsiä

afternoon commute
spring rain soothing
my jangles nerves

after shift from hell
pulling out extra weeds
form the garden beds
red-tipped apple blossom -
bee visits the
house of a thousand kisses

Enjoying the sights...

afternoon commute
dogwood blossoms
bounce in the breeze
such joy
cherry blossom swirling:
one rides on a dog's nose

home depot run
chatting with the maples
to see which one is mine

balmy spring evening

a fox startled in the headlights;

coming out of church

cherry blossoms
May wind and butterfly -
writing a haiku ?


fleurs de cerisiers
vent de mai et papillon -
écrire un haiku ?

quiet afternoon
landscape planning
for friend's new house

Early Summer Evening

It’s getting late
blue sky and white clouds
Blackbird and I
still sitting out
enjoying the evening

retail therapy

hard month at work
mulling over which new plant
will make it better

Summer Haiku 2008 in a fortnight

About a fortnight to start Summer 2008 Haiku

This haiku site will end on May 12, 2008.

Is there a Haiku Soul who wants to create and administer the Summer Haiku 2008 blog?

Write to me at ashi@kjaersweb.dk

I haven't been written much this Spring, but I have the feeling that Spring Haiku 2008 has been a rather productive for others. I hope that this spirit will continue in a Summer Haiku 2008 blog.

May Day
an ominous lump on
the radiograph
afternoon chores
filling some new flower pots
while the dryer runs
mother's hands
buried in the earth -
her cherry tree blossoming

renga party!

I've just finished a nijuin renga workshop for The Poetry School, and submitted it for publication.

For a feel of the atmosphere, on a fine spring day, please visit this weblink:
Area 17:

shorter evening
an overcast sky follows me
into the pub

all my best,

32 days and counting to the deadline!
The With Words Online Haiku Competition

morning commute
atop flowering dogwood
half moon rests

Arctic spring

always surprising -
from the African summer
the early swallows


aina yllättäen -
Afrikan kesästä
varhaiset pääskyset
