[bird of paradise flower from google dot com]

departing spring
the cherish of memories
left to savour

blog hopping today at

Carpe Diem #1045 departing spring

[Kristjaan who proposed this prompt for today explains - Jane brought something new to my haiku as I got to know her. She brought beauty and simplicity into my haiku ... she gave my haiku new life. New life is spring, but now ... with the passing away of Jane ... that new life starts to depart from my haiku. It feels like a lack of inspiration, a writer's block ... so departing spring is to me more than what it says]

in deep silence
drizzling rain
rustling of leaves

departing spring
to remember the words
I hum the tune
