April Surprises…

On April 20, 2022, of this year, obviously, I took a New Year’s walk with my little love, Lola. She is nearly 14 years old this October 2022. Anyway, before our daily walks, since there is no rain, I was allowed by Mother Nature to make the following observations of my Lola and other natural things, during and after our daily walks. I hope you, reader(s) enjoy the happiness and surprises that we encountered on that day. If I had my camera in hand, I would have taken a quick photo, but of course, the snake in its travels, moved swifter than I could. 😉

before our walk…

the sunshine is ahead
of the sunrise

teacup chihuahua
her shiny coat
ahead of the sunshine

sunshine—
teacup chihuahua
a sunny spot moves
around the apartment

during our walk…

sunrise
a gardener snake
rises itself from the grass

sunrise—
as the gold snake rises
from the grass

the gardener snake rises
suddenly, swiftly
april sunrise

after our walk…

sunshine
my chihuahua rests
on the sofa

sunshine—
sleepy chihuahua
stays in bed sulking
for a short while

sleeping chihuahua…
where a soft light shines
peeking
from the blankets

grass buds shooting up—
colder than snow
April Fool’s Day

there are roses
where snow falls
April Fool’s Day

blooming tulips
the sighting of raging flames—
April Fool’s Day

snow falls
it falls rather than
raindrops
April Fool’s Day

April blizzard—
days without
reading or writing Haiku

night snow
on the ground
April Fool’s Day

April snow—
the colors of spring
change suddenly

lies and truth
in the depth of one day
accumulated snow (1b)

colorful lies
as many as the number
of spring flowers

autumn deepens
so too
number of the lies

depth of snow
old lies come
in the number of flakes (4a)

depth of snow
all lies come
in the number of flakes (4b)

avalanche —
old lies
suddenly pile ups

deepening winter
their number increases…
old lies (6a)

deepening winter
their number increases…
all lies (6b)

avalanche as many lies as many old lies as new lies

*100 days, possible 105 days until my 42nd birthday. I am trying to see how many new Haiku I can accumulate before the big day. 😉
