#Haikai Challenge #127: waters of spring (haru no mizu)

Spring in the mountains
Frozen stream and bright sun dance
Warm laughter trickles

Intermission done
Velvet cloud curtains open
Sun’s speech, Spring’s tears

Winds chase Spring’s raindrops
In spirals around tree trunks —
Buds dream of leafing.

Midseason’s water
Winter and Spring’s tug of war
Snow, sleet, rain menu

Wormless hunger greets
Early robin’s arrival –
Birdbath skating rink.

Frank J. Tassone is the host of Haikai Challenge.  Frank says:
This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to the waters of spring (haru no mizu).
