Sick and feverish
Glimpse of cherry blossoms
In my old home
which I forsook, the cherries
are in bloom.
the sky over my house too
like old times
The first shower of rain
The sky has thrown
Its roots on earth

I am glad I found OSI! I am really enjoying writing the prompts!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the inspiration! Here's my Spring In New York Haiku.ReplyDelete
The Kobayashi Issa one brings me to the verge of tears.
spring is actually rather wintry here this year and confusingReplyDelete
It seems more like winter at present.ReplyDelete
This is a quiet place for me to come relax and enjoy the thoughts of others.ReplyDelete
Thank you for pulling this together and making me feel welcome.
If we call it, it will come! Here's mine: One Single ImpressionReplyDelete
I wrote mine before this prompt, hope it's okay to make it my One Single Impression.ReplyDelete
Sorry Linky got my link for Sunday Scribblings.ReplyDelete
Spring is here (not exactly spring, but the link is here)!
It was spring here three days ago, but not today!ReplyDelete
Hi everybody! I am late late late today (grading midterm exams!). Hope everybody is a bit warmer this weekend.ReplyDelete
I have so enjoyed the contributions but it seems that some folk are taking the opportunity to use this place as an opportunity for free advertising. Is it small of me to find that annoying?ReplyDelete
Once again thanks for this prompt. It is such good practice for me and I'm learning to love to write haiku. But, oh how I wish spring would come through winter's door here.ReplyDelete
I like the calendar idea:ReplyDelete
It gives me time to hunt for a photo (this week has given me the hardest time, I kept on looking for a picture of puddle which I knew I had taken but could not find).
I too resent people using the link tool for another purpose than that intended, but I suppose there isn't anything we can do about this?
What a great idea! Thanks for putting this together for all of us to enjoy.ReplyDelete
what a great prompt this week... spring is fast approaching though the air is still cool ... all the early spring bulbs are starting to appear.. Waiting BloomsReplyDelete

Lovely theme, thanks!ReplyDelete
Happy to join in this week - spring is sprung at "a wrung sponge"!ReplyDelete
Spring is especially wonderful this year! Until last night... we dipped back down into the 30's. Oh, my poor little seedlings!!ReplyDelete
Sorry for all the links that don't work, my blog is acting weird....ReplyDelete
Sigh. Sorry for all those links to my page that don't work!!!! I think I've got it figured out now.ReplyDelete
beautiful moment, excellent.ReplyDelete
I was so inspired last week that I could not pass this week by without an entry. Love this group!ReplyDelete
Because I was so very late with my entry for Circles, I've tried to be more prompt with this week's entry and I intend to do one for each of my blogs ... so today's is a light-hearted 'twist' on the theme because my brain is thinking laterally today. It's here: SpringReplyDelete
Hugs and blessings,
Back to leave a link to a more 'traditional' response to this week's prompt: A Colorful Offering especially for those awaiting Spring's arrival.ReplyDelete
Hugs and blessings,
Sorry to miss last week, but I am back for this week.ReplyDelete
I am very late joining in, but anxiously anticipate reading all of these entries.ReplyDelete
It actually felt like Spring today!ReplyDelete
It's not Spring in Australia at the moment. So I didn't really feel I could capture the spirit of the season.ReplyDelete
So I translated the word another way!
Hope you like!
a spring in my walkReplyDelete
for i am the spirit of spring!
