I think of spring in terms of daylight more than snow. This morning was the first morning of this year when I saw my shadow while bicycling to work.
Sunrise at eight and clear skies meant that I arrived at work in full daylight. Sunset is at four, so going home I rode my bike in darkness. Spring for me will come when I also come home in full daylight. Summer is when I go to bed in daylight and rise in daylight.
Still, I would love to have some winter before it’s spring.
even before dawn —
with its tangerine brushstrokes
sun bids me welcome
Franks asks us to write haibun on the topic of spring at dVerse. I still think it should be winter, but temperatures are way too high for the season.
