In this pandemic, days are added to days. Season follows season, and we have started to count the time in years. We can go on to live like this, as long as there are changes to notice. During winter days are alike but as spring is here every day is different. The other day we saw the first Liverwort blooming, and from the thickets blackbirds were singing. It is not yet time for cherry blossoms and I do not think we should leave to look for the bloom this year either. We will have to do with apple bloom later in May.
snow or butterflies
No! in spring it’s falling
Today we are writing Haibun with Frank at dVerse. We are to write using the classic kigo cherry blossom. We are so far north so cherry blossoms are still many months away. I do not expect to see any of them, as nobody grows them were we live, and I will not go to downtown Stockholm this spring either.
