Five Haiku: Spring Firsts

Spring’s first bitterness—
the church on top of the hill
is consumed by fire.
First small joy of spring—
at the bike store a young boy
gets a bargain price.
First Sunday of spring—
a worn, but polished, church bell
rings out loud and clear.
Spring’s first disaster—
the smoke-drenched walls of the bar
tell a fiery tale.
Spring’s first conundrum—
stand below the fire station,
tell me what you see.

Cups of jasmine tea—
what’s the optimal amount
for healing sorrows?
