As Autumn Nears, I Remember Spring

Memories of spring
Rain rippling in puddles
Thinking of sweaters

Today filled with rain, cleansing Seattle’s air of the lingering smoke. Very, very welcome indeed.

Just a few days until autumn. Though I look forward to sweater weather, I dread the greater resistance to spending time outside. Something to overcome.

Today’s Word of the Day Haiku: Contact

Today’s “Word of the Day” challenge features “Contact”. I stared at the blank screen for few moments before I was able to start pulling this one together. One of yesterday’s photos came to mind. On my evening walk yesterday, I was watching the bees flit about these flowers. When this lady buzzed right into the flower in front of me, I was delighted to catch the moment.

Today’s Word Of The Day Challenge Haiku

Taking part in the Word of the Day challenge, where today’s word is “Opinion”. It seems fitting as spring flowers are starting to wane to talk about the falling blossoms.
