Spring Haiku 2021


In the early Spring

Snows will melt clear away

and I will see your face.


As the seasons change, I sometimes get inspired to write haiku. I ended up with handful last year about the cherry blossoms still blooming event admid my frustration with being stuck near home due to COVID.

But this one is from many years back; I previously published it in Frogpond: The Journal of American Haiku. It’s actually how I earned me first writing dollar! They actually sent me a dollar bill in the mail! Don’t ask me the issue; it’s somewhere on one of my shelves. The single haiku they published was from a related seasonal bunch I sent. Maybe sometime I’ll recall the rest.

Cheryl is a former Occupational Therapist and WordPress enthusiast who became a writer in some parallel universe and occasionally, but infrequently, publishes things in this one. She writes two blogs (or is it three) which she won't quit because she knows that blogs, in her case, are like a hydra and if she cuts one off two more will take its place. When she's not doing that, she enjoys hiking, cycling, kayaking (formerly fast, now ebike), messing around with Adobe illustrator, making assorted things, meditating (though she wouldn't call that "like," and reading. She normally doesn't speak about herself in the third person, but she sometimes uses "we" in the royal sense while writing this blog. She lives in Poulsbo, WA with her spouse, her youngest adult daughter, a very old mutt, and a Siamese cat.
