First Day of Spring

From Jack Hohenstein, resident Haiku master:hohenstein026

March thaw melts the snow.

It’s no time to go walking

With holes in your shoes.

Another Winter passes…

Imagine yourself

A flowering tree, working,

Waiting for April.

and Spring

The brisk May wind blows.

Last year’s leaf at Kerry’s feet

Waits to be noticed.

There are copies of Jack’s book available at the Free Library branch in Frankford.  Also interesting is that Amazon has not picked up Jack’s book but does carry a game invented by Jack.  You can see it on our bookstore page.  He is a multi-talented individual.
