Equinox and weeds

Carpe Diem
March 20th prompt - Tsukushi (horsetail)

in my front garden
horsetail - survival lesson 
today, as always

NaHaiWriMo
March 20th prompt - first day of spring

day and night kissing 
with the same intensity
while winter says ”bye”

swarm of violets
pondering the day and night -
spring equinox time

Sensational Haiku Wednesday
March 20th prompt - Continuity

season changing rite,
winter says "bye" spring says "hi" -
continuity

Writer's Digest
March 20th prompt - walk

under the spring moon,
re-arranging my stray thoughts
while taking a walk
