The picture and the haiku are one. And the haiku resonates even though I suspect there is a mom-to-be focus on the ultrasound, but not necessarily.
Thanks, Sully. I haven’t entirely decided what’s going on in this one myself…
Loved this haiku when I read it in Modern Haiku. The photo is brilliant, Melissa; especially as we don’t have spring snow here!
We don’t normally have it this late, either, Kristen — after blossoms have already started. This was quite an unusual snowfall a few years ago, an inch or more a week into May. A little depressing but also rare and beautiful (and it melted quite quickly and didn’t damage anything, so all’s well that ends well…).
For us here in autumn, it was apparently the warmest May on record this year! (Oh, and no snow at all where I live by the beach:)
Sigh…living by the beach in New Zealand. I’m hoping that if I’m really really good in this life that’s what I’ll get to do in my next. 🙂
a new snow cone
sharp ku. beautiful photo. exquisite ku/image combination.
Thanks much, Wrick. Though now you’ve made me want a snow cone, damnit.
…love your new gravatar, by the way! “rain beard” — that kills me.
