A Haiku Each Day

Sixty-two hundred and five Syllables a year.

Windy Day

Willows blown sideways
Like kelp in a strong current
Wind is air’s riptide.

(The first haiku I wrote since being assigned one in grade school; it doesn’t have an immediately obvious kigo but the wind bending trees in half has to be the early-winter kogarashi.)
