Living so near the
Equator, how do you explain
your frigid heart?

Go straighten your hair
Look nice for all the dudes that
you won't ask to dance

Private secret held -
I have days that glisten and
No one sees but me

Children always know
Who they are, who they can be
Love them, step aside

Spot Haiku 27

Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring

Layers of meaning
Layers of winter hardship
Peel off in sunshine

Cathy Dineen

Come part clouds part clouds
So unrest and frustration
Give way to content

Simon Patience

There was hail in Perth
And mighty winds did sweep down
Now just chirping birds.

Sutekh the Destroyer

Winter versus Spring:
Will frost destroy sweet blossoms?
No, but Summer will.

Sharkbite von Herringattack

This light comes in time
For me to see clearly
We need umbrellas

Cathy Dineen

soft and warm breezes
green shoots and scented blossoms
a change of season

A haiku about strawberry helicopters

Can't say something nice?
Strawberry helicopters!
Say something surreal.
