January thaw
a breeze ruffles the leaves

Revision of a haiku that appeared at the Caribbean Kigo Kukai, January 2010

I've always thought it nicely convenient for poets that we call calendar pages leaves.

Nice one, Bill!

Eric, if you're nice to the English language, the English language will be nice to you.

Your reading is appreciated, Devika.

Thanks, John.

And sometimes, Frank, time even marches in the right direction.
