 Haiku or a Haibun for us from one of the classical haiku masters to work with, the haiku-poet for this week is Mizuhara Shuoshi (1892-1981)

A new year begins
With the blooming
Of a single frosty rose

Here is my Haibun  – Struggling

The weather pattern is so mixed these days, it’s hard to tell if its summer or winter. Walking around the garden I see it has the same problems, some days so hot the next week it is freezing.

The sun warms my soul, the nights are chilled, I warm up in my bed but the garden just sits and freeze and growth continues slowly.

bloom lost in season
struggling for survival
against the cold odds
