The Seasons Play

Haiku--about the seasons

Upon thinking about this week’s Haiku Horizon Challenge–Week 49–Prompt: Play , the weather inspired me to write this Haiku as it seems Spring is playing around with Winter here in our part of the country. The last few days we have had unseasonably warm weather in Portland, Oregon. The temps have been in the mid sixties and the air has had a springtime feel to it. The higher elevations are receiving even warmer weather!  The temps have been 68-70 degrees near Mt. Hood!  We know it’s too early for Winter to leave us but it seems Spring is trying to come back early!  I am definitely not complaining! 🙂


A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home. I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.

    1. Thanks Sue. I can thankfully say it was a real life experience. 🙂 The weather here has been so beautiful and I did indeed really hear the meadowlark singing in the meadow next to my home and my neighbor’s wind chimes were playing a beautiful melody in the soft breeze. Thus my Haiku was inspired. 🙂 Thanks for visiting and commenting.
