Prompt 4: Spring

As we enjoy the official beginning of this season, our prompt is spring.

Ryunosuke Akutagawa

Sick and feverish
Glimpse of cherry blossoms
Still shivering.

Kobayashi Issa
In my old home
which I forsook, the cherries
are in bloom.

spring's begun--
the sky over my house too
like old times

Shrikant Varma
The first shower of rain
The sky has thrown
Its roots on earth
