March arrives ~ senryū

March arrives
denying winter
brings no change

I was well into my thirties before I accepted that my early March birthday is not in the spring.
I dislike winter that much, although I actually saw one budding tree while kayaking on Sunday, so Missouri does offer that over Western New York. (* click image *)

This short-form senryū is my response to Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday

  1. Happy Birthday, Ken! This has been a far warmer than usual winter in Texas – our poppies have begun popping and yet I know there is a possibility of a freeze yet – yikes! Winter is not to be underestimated!!
