Spring bling

Frank Tassone’s #Haikai Challenge #130 (3/14/20): [spring/autumn] equinox (higan) #haiku #senryu #haibun #tanka #haiga #renga

Spring/Autumn is in the air. As the Equinox arrives late Thursday, March 19th, let it be our kigo this week!

Write the haikai poetry of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to the [spring/autumn] equinox (higan). -Frank Tassone

Sayings via Farmer’s Almanac – Donโ€™t say that spring has come until you can put your foot on nine daisies.
