#TankaTuesday 24 Seasons Syllabic #Poetry Challenge - #Syllabic #poem #poetrycommunity #seasonalKigo #Kigo #seasons #Shunbun #haiku #SpringEquinox @YvetteMCalleiro


Hello, beautiful readers! This week, in the 24 Seasons Syllabic Poetry Challenge, we have entered into the season of the Spring Equinox. We are experiencing longer days and are spending more time outdoors. Here in South Florida, I am loving the warmer weather. Our oceans still have chilly water, but it's more tolerable now. Our winds have kicked up as they always do in Spring. This week, we have had several days in the high 80s, and I've loved every minute of it.

I have had a very busy week (just like every other week...lol). At school, the students are getting ready for Spring Break, and their attention spans are waning. I've had something going on every afternoon, so I've had little time to do much, but I still managed to write a haiku for this week. My haiku has three lines with a syllabic pattern of 5-7-5. My kigo phrase is bolded and italicized.

March southernly winds
ocean crests, warmer weather
all flock to beaches

To enjoy Spring Break, I will be leaving soon on a cruise to the Caribbean islands to really enjoy the warmer weather, so I may not be around much. Still, I will reply to your comments before I leave or after I return. Be well, everyone! :-)

  1. Oh, I can't wait for us to have 26.7 degrees Celsius here in my part of the world. I don't need the beaches but the warmer weather. I am not a beach person. But I love your pic and you haiku.
    I thought about you and your trip this morning. Sending you prayers and good wishes for a beautiful cruise. Take care.
    Shalom shalom

  9. I would love to flock where you are going. There's nothing like warm, lovely, cresting ocean beaches - a break from the cold. Lovely poem, my friend.

  12. (Jules) Have a wonderful spring holiday. Around here the students don't generally have more than a day either side of a weekend - so when ours were younger - there really wasn't much we could do. Private schools have a little more time because of religious or other observances.

    We had quite a bit of rain yesterday - so the creek is high! But it isn't a place I'd swim in... I guess I'll have to go to the gym pool for that! ;)

    Cheers!
