Haiku Carpe Diem #136, Haru Ichiban (First Spring Gust)

The Carpe Diem Haiku prompt today is Haru Ichiban (First Spring Gust)

Three Haiku blown in from the south today. The first, a more classic style imagining a battle twixt wind and sun. The second, inspired by a musical treat from Japan. The third, as a sailor, a tribute to a Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race veteran Ichiban…

Wherever you are, may your day bring a rising sun, warm breezes and calm seas.

Smiles, love and laughter.

    Sailors know and (love-hate) the wind! We sail where there is water deep enough for our boat, with little summer wind. Our alternative is loads of breezes on a shallow bay!!


  3. Lovely, very warm and positive!


  4. That’s SAILING 😉 very nice.

  6. Awesome JRB, what a wonderful set of haiku you share here with us. I love that second one, what a sweet song. Thank you for sharing.
