dandelions just higher
than the grass

    going through the archives when i stumbled
    upon your piece. not bad not great, kinda
    tepid like the weather that spawns dandeelions.
    just being honest.

    tornado watch...
    the first dandelion blooms
    in the perennial garden

    "dandelions just higher than the grass" is
    a very good line. but tell me, what exactly is
    "a bright breeze?" is it a breeze that lifts one's
    spirits? certainly it is not a breeze with color,
    or is it?

    an orange breeze
    dances in my eyes

    hi prado,

    'a bright breeze' - yes it's a spring breeze - one that does lift our spirits - interestingly in workshop with young children the majority identify 'bright breeze' as perhaps being a spring breeze - despite this not being aterm that they've met before - it is a traditional spring kigo in Japanese haiku.

    spring somewhere...


    chill, this rainy night
    time stands still
    even moves backward
