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! 🙂
This poem written in honor of National Hat Day which is celebrated yearly on January 15th
Is so Divine!
Except it brings shadows,
Which scare animals I suppose.
He ran to hide.
Saw his shadow today,
And it made him not want to play.
