In February, spring comes temporarily to New Jersey, and we rejoice to see yellow and purple crocuses open to the light. In Florida, families bury their dead, while youthful hearts, watered with blood, swell and join together to cry out against the darkness.
Rising above ground
bulbs thrust tendrils to surface,
seeking warmth and light
we gather, remembering
seeds of kindness, blooms of love
This is for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday. Colleen asked us to use synonyms for breakthrough and movement. I don’t know if a Haibun can include a tanka instead of a haiku. So this is either a Haibun or a tanka with a poetic introduction. Maybe someone can let me know. 🙂
