2074



gusty winds –
the brightness of April sun
in children smiles

❧✿❧

April saunters in –
thrusts of windy gusts spill
carpets of blossom

❧✿❧

Sahara Dust clouds
kites swerve and dive as
April enters

Lovely, Gillena. I think my favourite has to be:
Sahara Dust clouds
kites swerve and dive as
April enters

Reading your haikus, Gillena, am struck by the strength of your spring wind, as opposite, to rainy days that greet my part of southern Ontario. Can imagine many a hat being blown away and chased after, by these winds.

Such lovely imagery. The kite driven by gusty winds, diving to the ground, the bright smiles on children's faces, all bring back sweet memories for me. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely glimpses that, together, seem to give me the whole picture.
