First Spring Gale



Haru Ichiban
Dance of destruction
Cost of spring




Haru Ichiban is the first spring storm in Japan that signals the arrival of spring. It often disrupts life and triggers heavy rains and avalanches in many parts of this country.

    1. hahaha........I agree ma'am, perhaps it takes a storm to pull Japanese from their duties. In India a light shower is enough.

  3. Thanks for teaching me a new term today. How ironic that the arrival of new life in spring is heralded by a devastating storm. Love the picture you painted with your words :)

  9. Oh! not good, I mean the storm. Even we are preparing for another storm, just when we thought we are entering spring in US.

    Your haiku are great!
