I like this early spring haïku - conveying feelings seldom associated with spring. A wave of sadness, of sorrows for what's been left behind... very moving.

There is a lot of poetry in the break between winter and spring. This break in your haiku is very short, Bill, and very deep. I like it very much.

Best wishes

(In the Bay of Bothnia there are heavy pack ice and even the powerfull ice-strenghtened vessels got big problems.)
