zansetsu haiku

wet birth of fresh calf

sanctifies muddy season

remaining snow melts

“Zansetsu” is a Japanese kigo that means “remaining snow”… from Frank J. Tassone’s recent prompt at American Hajjin

    Poor babies are born in the wet and cold! I always thought nature was a bit cruel there. ❤
