Have fallen victim
to some spring-time allergy.

Day draws to a close
and I welcome a long night
of deep, sweet slumber.

it’s hard to read and write and
compose my haiku.

reminds that I love luscious

My mood is as gray
as the sky outside my door —

Winter wonderland–
so wrong for an April day.
Time for a warm-up.
