Hi, over on Marks blog he tells us we have entered the micro-season of “Bamboo Shoots Appear.” This is the third micro-season of the mini-season of First Summer.

He also invites us to write a haiku or senryu that incorporates the “what-when-where” technique of haiku as described in

Mark recommend that the “what” should be a plant, the “when” is now, and the “where” should be personal to ourselves.

I was born and live in rural North Wales (UK) and found poetry again after a lifetime, so grateful I did :)
