Snowflakes in March

Yesterday, with a leap of my imagination, the snowflakes falling outside my study window became little pieces of paper.  Daylight Savings Time begins this month, also Spring here, and the robins and red-wings always return around March 21.  Perhaps because I posted about the Haiku Lessons at The Haiku Foundation, I thought of an idea for a March elementary school bulletin board – or any age, perhaps for a nursing home.   There could be handmade snowflakes with words like Spring, robins, snowdrops . . .Winter To Spring.

I saw some beautiful pictures with blue in my Reader this morning.

For example:

blue door by Sharon at Sunearthsky, Visual meditations from the Midwest

Still Life.1 by Charley at Vector Charley, All travel is local

The photos by Karl are favorites.  We’ll include some Lake Michigan photos in the Easter and Spring book.  I am not worried about any deadline for the print book, but my goal is to have an online version ready to share Easter weekend.  Each week, I see a little more of the book in my mind.  Have made several notes.

all winter
flowers rested
in the earth
beauty begins
in the heart

Haiku Lessons at The Haiku Foundation

The Haiku Foundation has a wonderful new design.  Along with the many good programs, the Haiku Lessons I helped to write are listed on the home page.  Interested readers can simply click on “Haiku Lessons” to visit the Educational Resources Page.  Jim Kacian is the editor.  Many people contribute to this education work, and to THF in general.   Dave Russo is the web administrator.  Everyone serves as volunteers, and the foundation is non-profit.
